The Duke of Athens is going to marry the Queen of the Amazons. During the festival two men named Lysander and Demetrius meet, and fall in love with Hermia who is the Daughter of the man, Theseus. Theseus gives Demetrius permission to marry Hermia although Hermia loves Lysander.
A group of men begin to practice a performance to put on for the wedding of the Duke. Some of the men have a tough time working together. Nick Bottom thinks he is very good and should play the main roll and by arguing about this, he and Peter Quince, who is the man putting on the show begin to dislike each other.
Meanwhile Hermia and Lysander run away in order to be together. Before running away Hermia tells her best friend Helena that she is running away. Helena is ecstatic about the news because now she would try to win over her true love Demetrius.
In the woods, a mischievous fairy named Puck tries to solve the group's love issues. He accidentally makes Lysander fall in love with Helena. Then while trying to fix his mistake he causes Demetrius to fall for her too. Now both men love Helena and nobody is with Hermia.
