Claudio’s fellow comrade, Benedick, resumes his war of witty insults with Hero’s cousin, Beatrice. Their friends decide to take it upon themselves to arrange the match-making of both couples, with a few tricks and games along the way. Meanwhile, there are one or two troublemakers ready to disrupt everyone’s happiness…
