Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark, is still getting over the death of his father, when a ghost appears to him. The ghost is his father who claims that he had been murdered by Hamlet's uncle, who had then married Hamlet's mother. He must then figure out how to expose his murderous uncle's actions and claim the throne for himself. Behind the scenes, however, Hamlet's life is in danger as well.
