The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, whose fortunes rise when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up.

Were it a movie, Sweeney Todd would be rated PG-13.
