Plot synopsis
The story of Hamlet, prince of Denmark, transferred to the XXI century. The heroes must solve the same moral problems and overcome the same difficulties, but with modern means. Instead of sword duels – a race, instead of letters – video messages, instead of a classical soundtrack – pieces by Deep Purple.
