During the Theban civil war, Antigone’s brothers fight on opposing sides and are killed. King Creon decrees one brother's body will remain on the battlefield, unburied and without holy rites. Antigone struggles whether to accept this law or courageously risk her life for the sake of family honor. This classic Greek tragedy conveys the struggle between one woman’s ethics and the laws of the state.
