Punishment Without Revenge

Directed by Ceri Sherlock

The Duke has no children to inherit his fortune, except an illegitimate son who, having become motherless some years ago, went to live with his natural father. The Duke is now going to marry a young woman, Casandra, since he wants to clear his reputation by starting a new life. He also wants to have a legitimate heir. Federico does not like this idea, since being no legitimate heir to the Duke's fortune, he loose any chance to remains the Duke's heir. Federico is sent to go on the road to welcome Casandra, the Duke's bride and his future stepmother. Federico immediately falls in love with her, and so does she. When the Duke leaves to fight for the Pope love blossoms between Casandra and the Duke's son. In a culture where honour is the highest virtue there can be only one outcome...
