Benjamin Barker reinvents himself as Sweeney Todd, after being unjustly sent to prison returns to exact revenge on those who ruined his life, especially the evil Judge Turpin who was responsible for it all, having defiled Barker's innocent wife and baby daughter. When he returns to his home town, he reopens his barber shop, where Mr. Todd becomes the Demon of Fleet Street. Mrs. Lovett is Sweeney's amorous accomplice who creates diabolical meat pies out of the remains of Mr. Todd's victims while he exacts revenge on the upper crust who let men like Turpin exist.
