A "sequel" to The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare.

Kate marries Petruchio in a state of submission, only to turn the tables on her husband and family with devilish brilliance. A sexy update to “The Taming of the Shrew” that is designed for 21st century audiences.

The story takes up a year after Kate and Petruchio's marriage. They are traveling to Rome and decide to stop in Pisa to visit Bianca and Lucentio (Kate's sister and her husband). Kate and Petruchio have both changed a great deal from the original play - they have both mellowed significantly.

When they arrive in Pisa, they find Bianca and Lucentio are not at all happily married - Lucentio wants his wife to cook and clean and raise babies, while Bianca wants to wear nice clothes and be pampered and avoid losing her figure by not having children at all. Petruchio bets Kate that she cannot reconcile the two within three days. Mischief closely follows.
