La reine Gertrude s'est remariée avec Claudius, le frère de son défunt mari le roi. Hamlet, prince héritier, ne le pardonne pas à sa mère. Un soir, le spectre de son père lui fait des révélations qui l'abasourdissent: Claudius l'a assassiné pour s'emparer du royaume, et de Gertrude par la même occasion. Hamlet n'aura dès lors de cesse de se venger. Il simule d'abord la folie afin de ne pas éveiller les soupçons de son oncle, mais est néanmoins contraint à l'exil par ce dernier, et sa fiancée Ophélie n'a plus que ses yeux pour pleurer. Devenue folle de douleur à la mort de son père Horatio, elle se suicide en se jetant dans un étang. Hamlet revient au pays au moment de son enterrement. Désormais plus lucide, il a décidé que l'heure de la vengeance a enfin sonné, et une lutte mortelle va alors l'opposer à son oncle
