With its ships plying the globe, Venice welcomes all, as long as they are doing business and making profits, but when a contract between Bassanio and the Jewish buisnessman Shylock is broken, simmering ethnic tensions boil over. A wronged father and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.P
