Macbeth

Synopsis
One of King Duncan’s best generals, Macbeth is showered with honours at court having achieved a great victory. When some drifters prophesy that he will be King and encouraged by the ambitions of his wife, Macbeth decides to give fate a helping hand by murdering his rivals. In doing so, he does become King and engineers a terrible new fate for himself to fulfil another prophesy that future rulers will not be his descendants.
