Macbett (The Caribbean Macbeth)

Synopsis
Feature film. After winning a gallant military victory over rebels who attempted to overthrow King Duncan, the adored ruler of the souvenir nation of Antibes, General Macbett encounters the weird sisters, who are the spirit daughters of Mother Africa and reign over fire, water, earth and sky. They delight in manipulating the mortal Macbett by feeding him predictions of royal titles including "King." Macbett soon becomes obsessed with ambition as does his beautiful and ruthless wife, Lady Macbett. As Macbett and his Lady spiral downward, indulging in treachery and political assassinations, both become haunted by their murderous deeds and are ultimately driven mad. In a testimonial to a tragic figure, Macbett is defeated by his own zealous thirst for power. [Synopsis from IMDb written by the director, Jan. 2012].
