You see, there's this wicked judge who extradites a London barber to Australia for a crime he didn't do just so he can have an affair with the man's pretty wife.
After being wrongfully imprisoned for 15 years, the now-mad man returns to his old trade under a new name, Sweeney Todd, and promises revenge. Besides doing his barber business, his razor also kills. Murder!
Once he is done, the bodies are sent to Mrs. Lovett, who bakes meat pies out of them and sells them to the unsuspecting populace of London.
