This dark comedy explores virtue and sin. Claudio has been arrested for getting his mistress pregnant and Angelo, the strict, morality-spouting judge, has sentenced him to death. When Claudio’s sister Isabella, a novice nun, begs Angelo to show mercy, he is instantly smitten . . . and offers Isabella a choice: her virginity for her brother’s life.
