In Shakespeare's Verona, family is destiny, but Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo and friend to Mercurio, rebels against his fate. By night, he becomes the Prince of Shadows, a brilliant sneak-thief who steals from the Montague house's enemies ... until one night, he encounters the fair Rosaline Capulet: an enemy who shakes his faith in all he knows.

When Mercurio's secret lover is murdered, the boy's grief unleashes a hellish curse on both the Montague and Capulet houses: a curse of love. It falls to sworn enemies Benvolio and Rosaline to try to stop it, before all is lost.
