The Montagues and the Capulets, two powerful families of Verona, hate each other. Romeo (Leslie Howard), son of Montague, crashes a Capulet party, and there meets Juliet (Norma Shearer), daughter of Capulet. They fall passionately in love. Since their families would disapprove, they marry in secret. Romeo gets in a fight with Tybalt (Basil Rathbone), nephew of Lady Capulet, and kills him. He is banished from Verona. Capulet (C. Aubrey Smith), not knowing that his daughter is already married, proceeds with his plans to marry Juliet to Paris, a prince. This puts Juliet in quite a spot, so she goes to the sympathetic Friar Laurence (Henry Kolker), who married her to Romeo.
He suggests a daring plan to extricate her from her fix. Tragedy ensues.
