In fifth century Gaul, Clothar the Lance Thrower is raised by his aunt, the Lady of the Lake when his father is murdered. At the same time, Caius Merlyn raises Arthur to become the future king of England.
Arthur and Clothar become close friends and the expatriate Frank becomes a believer in the dream of Camulod. As the duo and others begin their quest to make the ideal a reality, a woman enters the mix. This is no ordinary female as both Arthur and Clothar fall in love with her, but will this kind woman inadvertently prove to split the friends apart?
