Fearing Julius Caesar’s rising power, Caius Cassius assembles a group of conspirators to assassinate Caesar. After much effort, Cassius persuades Marcus Brutus, a friend of Caesar and one of Rome’s most respected citizens, to join the conspirators’ cause. On the Ides of March, Caesar ignores multiple warnings and attends the Senate, where the conspirators murder him. In the aftermath of the assassination, the conspirators permit Mark Antony, Caesar’s right-hand man, to deliver the funeral oration. After Brutus convinces the crowd that the conspirators acted justly, Antony eulogizes Caesar and turns the public against the conspirators. Civil war erupts in Rome, and two factions form: one led by Cassius and Brutus, the other by Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius.
from the novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis

A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. With multiple Hydes portrayed by members of the cast.
