At Lammermoor, Scotland in the late 17th century, the clans of Lord Enrico Ashton and Sir Edgardo di Ravenswood have long been in feud. Ashton killed Edgardo's father and seized his lands and properties. Then one day, Enrico's younger sister Lucia gets assaulted by a wild ox nearby her mother's graveyard. By chance, Edgardo passes by and comes to her rescue. They fall into love with each other ever since. As soon as he knows the fact, Enrico feels furious and even desires to take revenge no matter how hard priest Raymundo tries to absolve Lucia. Out of political ambition, Enrico asks his sister to abandon Edgardo and marry his colleague Lord Arturo Bucklaw, which Lucia rejects flatly. Soon later Edgardo would visit France, so he comes to bid Lucia adieu. On that occasion, they both swear to love each other all lifelong and exchange their rings as a show of eternal love. Later Edgardo writes many letters to Lucia, all of which are intercepted by Enrico's aide Normanno. Enrico and Normanno even fake letters to tell Lucia that Edgardo has got a new girlfriend. Upon receiving those letters, Lucia gets overcome with grief. With Raymundo's persuasion, Lucia falls into the trick and agrees to marry Arturo who can help pull her brother out of a predicament. As soon as Lucia signs her name at the wedding, Edgardo returns and appears all of a sudden. He damns her for betraying him and gets his ring back.
