We all know the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet. Even if you haven’t read the play, you must have seen some TV or movie adaptation of this Shakespeare marvel. But ever wondered what happens to Juliet once Romeo is dead if she never killed herself?

The plot is definitely something to look forward to if you enjoy a modern twist on classic tales. And how truly unique would it be to see a version of Romeo and Juliet where the female protagonist discovers that the end of a lover doesn’t necessitate the end of her own life?
