Romeo flies into a rage and kills Tybalt. The Prince, head of all schools in Verona, expels Romeo from all schools in the city because of his crime. Romeo flees to Mantua on the advice of the friar. Friar hopes to bring Romeo back once the charges are cleared and declare the marriage to all. All this time, Juliet’s parents want their daughter to marry Paris, a rich business man who could make their school the best in the land. Juliet refuses to marry Paris and fakes her death. Romeo, not knowing her death was faked, kills himself because he cannot bear to be without her. Juliet finds Romeo dead and kills herself because she cannot be without Romeo.
