On a jewel of an island floating in the Caribbean Sea, William Shakespeare's "MacBeth" is retold using a Modern Day Monarchy as its backdrop. This Universal and relevant story will come to life in a World where Black West Indians rule exclusively over a Black West Indian population. General MacBett returns to the Capital City after winning a gallant military victory over rebels fighting in opposition to King Duncan; the adored ruler of the Souvenir Nation of Antibes for more than fifty years. After a night of celebration Macbett accidentally comes upon the "Weird Sisters" the spirit daughters of Mother Africa, who reign over water, fire, earth and sky. They delight in manipulating the mortal MacBett through their supernatural powers and by feeding him predictions of royal titles, including "King".
MacBett soon becomes obsessed with ambition, as does his beautiful and ruthless wife, Lady MacBett. They indulge in political assassinations and evil manipulations to acquire power and are soon haunted by their own murderous deeds. Ultimately, both are driven mad; Lady Macbett commits suicide and MacBett commits military suicide battling the opposition, lead by Malcolm the murdered King's Eldest Son and rightful Ruler, and General MacDuff, MacBett's most feared competitor, who's wife and children had been murdered by MacBett. As a testimonial to the definition of a tragic story; MacBett is defeated by his own zealous thirst for power, a heartbreaking ending to a once beloved Hero.
