Bianca (Deborah Rush), the daughter of nobleman Baptista, cannot marry until her older sister (Meryl Streep) finds a husband. There is no man in Padua brave enough to woo the shrewish Katherine, so Bianca's suitors enlist the help of Petruchio (Raul Julia), who has just arrived from Verona. Though he woos Katherine unsuccessfully, Petruchio secures her father's permission and the two are married.
