When you are passionately in love nothing else matters. The son and daughter of two landed families locked in an old feud are irresistibly drawn to each other. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to believe they can, and must, be together. This eternal classic is a consummate tragedy of young lovers swept into a catastrophic vortex of misunderstandings, secrets, and fate.
