Animation loosely based on the Shakespeare play ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Mrs Montague and Mr Capulet are feuding neighbours whose rivalry extends to the inhabitants of their gardens, with blue-hatted gnomes living in the Montague garden and red-hatted ones in the Capulet garden. Gnomes Juliet and Gnomeo from rival gardens meet and fall in love and have to meet secretly against a backdrop of acts of revenge and counter-revenge amongst their friends and families.
