"An unjustly exiled barber, Sweeney Todd (Jett Pangan) returns to 19th-century London seeking vengeance. His revenge leads him to Mrs. Lovett (Lea Salonga), a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop. Sweeney Todd opens a new barber practice and Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts. People of London start lining up for her pies...and the carnage has only just begun!"
