The retelling of Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition, desire and passion. Set in Melbourne’s ganglands, Macbeth is convinced that he is destined to one day assume great power. His ambition, fuelled his drug-addicted wife, leads him to plot to kill his close friend, Duncan. As his desire for power strengthens and he carries out his plan, he is forced to commit further foul deeds.
