Claire Zachanassian, the oft-widowed richest woman in the world, visits her hometown, now in a hopeless, dreary state. The townspeople hope that she brings money to help them with all their problems, and so she does – but it will cost them. She has returned with a mission of vengeance against her former lover, Anton, who impregnated her in their teen years and then gave testimony that forced her from town. The exchange is simple – Anton’s life for one billion dollars – but the town’s decision is understandably difficult.
