Romeo and Juliet meet each other and fall in love at first sight, at a party hosted by Juliet's family.
Although the families of Romeo and Juliet have had a long lasting feud, The forbidden lovers get married in secrecy under Friar Lawrence.
Romeo kills Tybalt, Juliet's cousin out of anger after Tybalt killed Mercutio. Romeo is then exiled to Mantua.
In attempt to cheer up Juliet over the death of Tybalt, Capulet arranges a marriage between Paris and Juliet.
To get out of the marriage, Juliet takes advice from friar Lawrence and fakes her death. They planned to get in contact with Romeo so he knew that they could be together soon, but the message never got to him in time.
Romeo visits the tomb to say goodbye and takes his life, not knowing Juliet was still alive. When Juliet woke up and saw that Romeo was dead she took her life too.
