Å være eller ikke være. Den unge prins Hamlet opplever at onkelen, Claudius, dreper hans far og gifter seg med hans mor. Hamlet rives mellom behovet for hevn, og frykten for vold og splittelse. Han vil fremover, men systemet holder ham igjen i jerngrep. Det handler om kampen mot et samfunn preget av korrupsjon, maktbegjær og giftige strukturer.
