Romeo and Juliet are 'two star crossed lovers' in Verona, who struggle to be with each other because their families: the Montagues (Romeo) and the Capulets (Juliet), hate each other and are in a feud.
Romeo and Juliet then secretly marry each other with the help of Friar Laurence who wishes to end the feud between the families through the union of Romeo and Juliet.
Tybalt (Juliet's cousin) seeks to duel Romeo for gate crashing the Capulets' party but Romeo refuses and instead, Mercutio (Romeo's friend) accepts the duel. Mercutio dies and now Romeo slays Tybalt and is then exiled from Verona on the orders of Prince Escalus.
Capulet (Juliet's father) agrees to marry Juliet to Count Paris. Juliet refuses to marry him and visits Friar Laurence for help. He offers her a potion that would put her in a deathlike coma. The Friar promises to send a messenger to inform Romeo of the plan. She takes the potion and is laid in the family crypt, believed to be dead.
The messenger does not reach Romeo and instead, he learns of Juliet's 'death' from his servant Balthasar and goes to the family crypt with poison. He finds Paris there who is mourning Juliet. Paris sees Romeo and fights him, leading to Romeo killing him. Still believing Juliet be dead, Romeo drinks the poison, killing himself.
Juliet then awakens and discovers that Romeo is dead. Wanting join him in death, Juliet uses Romeo's dagger and stabs herself. Both families, along with the Prince, meet at the tomb to discover Romeo, Juliet and Paris dead. Friar Laurence is the only one who knows the whole story and tells everyone it, reconciling both families and ending the feud.
