"Returning back to London after his wife and daughter had been stolen by Judge Turpin, Benjamin Barker adopts the name of Sweeney Todd and relocates his barber business to the top of Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop. Todd wants his revenge on the man who has now adopted his daughter, and works with Mrs. Lovett on an evil plan. Todd will slice the throats of the unsuspecting public whilst giving them a shave. These bodies would then be turned into Mrs. Lovett’s new meat pies. With this plan being successful, all Todd needs to do now, is try and convince the Judge to sit in his chair." (IMDB)
