It is the dark days of King Richard's reign, when the beloved king is fighting in far-off lands, leaving his corrupt brother John in charge of his kingdom.
Tensions between Saxon and Norman lords erupt in bouts of bloodshed or foul play; good men are banished, forced to turn outlaw and serve the true king in secrecy and disguise.
In this dangerous world, the brave Wilfred of Ivanhoe must grapple with the claims of family, crown, truth and justice if he is ever to win the hand of his true love, the beautiful Lady Rowena.
