TL;DR (may contain spoilers): Katherine doesn’t want to get married; Petruchio marries her and compels her to be obedient; everyone is happy? The end.
Lucentio loves Bianca but cannot court her until her shrewish older sister Katherina marries. The eccentric Petruccio marries the reluctant Katherina and uses a number of tactics to render her an obedient wife. Lucentio marries Bianca and, in a contest at the end, Katherina proves to be the most obedient wife.
