Need help with this--

'Think about how you might update Antigone in a modern setting, either in the US, or in some other part of the world. What kind of figure would Creon be? Who would Antigone be? What would Creon's conflict with Antigone be about? Write a brief summary of your modern version.'

I think I want to make Creon either a leader, or a head of a family. But I can't think of what the conflict would be in modern day times. Please help!

Thanks
-MC
