Caesar returns from battling a roman general. He had won and the citizens were celebrating his success. But not all Romans were pleased with Caesar though; they fear him, and believe that he is on the path to becoming a dictator.
A group of senators have turned against Caesar and elicit Brutus, one of caesar's friends, to join a conspiracy against him.
Brutus considers whether or not to trust Caesar. He eventually joins the conspiracy because he fears what Caesar may become, if he is made king. He thought whether caesar would get to powerful and use it selfishly.
The conspirators lured Caesar to the capital and murdered him!
Brutus asks Antony to stand and support his actions by speaking to the crowd. Antony is supposed to agree with the conspirators, but he backhandedly causes a riot, forcing the conspirators to flee the city.
Antony forms an alliance that vows revenge for caesar's death. He, Caesar's nephew Octavius, and Lepidus go after the conspirators in battle. Eventually, all the conspirators commit suicide, and Antony proclaims that Brutus shall receive a hero's burial.
