It's the year 1327 in Bavaria. Sixteen-year-old Lady Margarethe lives at the castle of her aunt and uncle as she studies music, under the instruction of Willem. Willem is a landless young nobleman, the younger son of a poor noble family. Margarethe and Willem are secretly in love, but because Willem will never have land of his own, they will never be able to marry. And now the time has come for Margarethe to be betrothed. When Margarethe's uncle learns of her and Willem's love, he sends Willem away to work at the castle of his ally, Lord Otto. But soon Margarethe must also travel there, and seeing Willem again only makes it harder -- especially since she is soon to be betrothed to Lord Otto's son Gregor. Gregor is a good and kind man, but Margarethe knows that she will never love him the way she loves Willem. Can Margarethe and Willem find, by some miracle, a way to be together?
