To pay off his gambling debts, bad-tempered Mr, Monster forces Juan Carlos Bodoque to put on a production of his favorite play, Romeo y Julieta by William Shakespeare within five years. During this time, Bodoque does not lift a finger and Mr. Monster, who comes back ready to see an impressive production, does not for one moment imagine that things are exactly as he left them. Desperate, Bodoque calls on his friends from 31 minutos to help him get out of this mess. Together with the well-known cast of 31 minutos, he begins to improvise a live version of the classic, with a choir of jongleurs singing songs between acts to help explain this complicated tragedy. In 31 minutos: Romeo y Julieta , the characters of the popular children’s series perform an extremely loose interpretation of the Shakespearean classic, infuriating scholars and confusing the ignorant.
