However, his new proclamation might go too far when it threatens to take the life of noble Claudio for getting his betrothed with child the wedding. Claudio’s sister, Isabella, must emerge from the convent, where she is on the verge of taking her vows, to plead for the life of her brother so Angelo might excuse the sin they both hate. Can the hard heart of Angelo be won over by the pious and endearing nun-to-be? What would you sacrifice in the name of compassion?
