Synopsis The story of a Juliet called Carmen, a nice middle-class girl with an angel's voice who wants to become a lawyer, and Sale, the dj Romeo who wants to become a producer and gets by on selling records. It is well-known by now that the Capulets and the Montagues prevented that love in the past, whereas in the present it's the Motion Crew and the Hard Cash Crew the ones that just because they hate each other expect Carmen and Sale to do likewise. So these two groups, rivals and sworn enemies, slag each other every night on the stage with their angry, furiously-paced rhymes. And there are no rules, the speechless, ridiculed loser will have to clench his teeth and face the music, while Carmen and Sale start realising there is no future for them.
