Synopsis

New York City, 2000. Claudius is a high-profile media magnate running the Denmark Corporation following the death of his brother. Claudius' new wife, Gertrude, the widow of his brother and Hamlet's mother, is a poised and powerful socialite. Hamlet is in love with Ophelia, who lives in an East Village squat, never far from the disapproving eye of her father, Polonius, Claudius' chief consultant and spin doctor. When the ghost of Hamlet's father appears on Hamlet's hotel room terrace, demanding vengeance of his "foul murder," Hamlet is thrown into a turmoil of indecision, anguish and doubt.
