Bassanio wants to get married, but he has no money and a lot of debts.
He asks his friend Antonio for a loan, but Antonio is waiting for his ships to return.
Until then, he has nothing to lend. To help Bassanio, he borrows money from a money-lender - and agrees to an unusual condition.
If Antonio cannot repay the loan in three months, the money-lender will cut a pound of flesh from his body.
Will Antonio be able to repay the loan? Or will he die?
