Following three different stage productions in three different countries, this documentary presents three very different interpretations of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Emotional meltdowns, twisted ankles and cast mutinies are all part of what it takes to be Romeo and Juliet at a youth summer camp production in Guelph, Ontario, an amateur production in Reading, England and a professional production, in a hip-hop style, at the Chilean National Theatre in Santiago.

Accompanying the different lead actors as they prepare to portray the archetypal lovers, To Be Romeo & Juliet creates a vivid record of these individuals transforming themselves in an engaging and evocative consideration of theatre, acting and love.
