Antigone, who wanted to bury Polynices so his soul wouldn't wander the earth forever, gets sent to be buried alive by Creon, a stubborn king.
Soon after sending Antigone away, Tiresias, the blind prophet, confronts Creon about the many errors he had committed.
Creon realizes he is mistake of burying Antigone, and so he goes to free her of her tomb, but when he arrives, he finds his son, Haemon, crying over Antigone.
Antigone had hanged herself.
Haemon then attempts to stab his father, but fails, and then he proceeds to stab himself.
When Creon returns to his palace, he finds out (through one of his messengers) that Eurydice, his wife, had also killed herself and had used her last breath to curse her husband.
It is seen that Creon deserves his punishment because of his haughty and proud nature.
At the end of this play, (quoted from Wikipedia), "the Chorus closes by saying that although the gods punish the proud, punishment brings wisdom".
