Young lover, Lucentio is determined to win the beautiful Bianca’s hand in marriage, however when Bianca’s father declares that it will only happen once her older sister Katherina is wedded, his chances seem slim. The competition to mould the fiercely independent Katherina into an obedient wife begins with the larger-than-life Pertruchio who takes on this equally sizable challenge.
