It starts of with the witches saying when shall we meet again. King Duncan hears about Macbeth and Banquo defeating two armies but as they cross the moor they see three witches that tell him he will be Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland, they tell Banquo he won't be king but his children will be.
Macbeth writes a letter to Lady Macbeth telling her that witches said he was going to be king. This makes Lady Macbeth think Macbeth is too soft because he won't kill Duncan. That is the only way he can become king.
On that night Lady Macbeth and Macbeth plan to get Duncan's two chamberlains drunk so they will black out. The next morning they will blame the murder on the chamberlains because they will remember nothing. When Duncan is asleep, Macbeth stabs him. The next morning Duncan's death was discovered so Macbeth killed the chamberlains out of rage of their crime.
Fearful of the witches' prophecy that Banquo's children will take the throne. So he orders two murderers to kill Banquo and his son, Fleance, on the way to the royal feast the kill Banquo but Fleance escapes! Macbeth becomes furious, as long as Fleance is alive, he fears his power remains insecure. At the feast Banquo's ghost visits Macbeth he goes crazy!
Macbeth goes to visit the witches, they tell him to be aware of Macduff, they also say he is incapable of being harmed by any man born of a woman. Macbeth is relieved and feels secure because he knows that all men are born of a woman. So he sets a army to seize Macduff's castle and kill Lady Macduff and his children.
In the battle between Macbeth and Macduff, Macduff declares that he was not born of a woman but was instead untimely ripped from his mother's womb which is a cesarean section. Macduff beheads Macbeth and Malcolm, Duncan's son becomes King of Scotland. The End.
