Sweeney Todd has a lucrative business shaving his customers too close. With the assistance of Mrs. Lovett, his partner in crime, he robs and erases. But Sweeney has other ambitions. He plans to marry the socially prominent and dainty Lily Fairoak and move into politics. Complications set in and the furious barber finds himself harassed by waifs from the orphanage, honest sailing lads, society matrons and the spirits of those he has done in. Comic chases, heart-rending moments in the depths of the city jail and joyous reunions are set against a background of the Barbary Coast, Chinatown, and Nob Hill.
