In the intersection of history and legend lies the story of William Wallace, who led his nation into battle against the English in the years around 1300. King Edward, popularly known as "Longshanks" has allowed the English barons who hold Scotland for him to claim the 'Prima Nocta.' Wallace and his love Murron marry secretly, but his guerrilla activities bring Murron to the attention of the English. They set a trap for Wallace, and the failure of the scheme sets Wallace on the path of both bloody revenge, and open rebellion against the tyrannical rule of the English. The quest to free Scotland from English rule is complicated by the machinations of various Scottish nobles, bribes from King Edward, and sly political treachery at the hands of Robert the Bruce, whose father has his own plans to further. Despite being taken prisoner, and put to a traitor's death, William Wallace is remembered to this day as a hero of Scotland

And though Billy is surrounded by decimation and the smoking remnants of ruined lives, his sense of enchanted wonderment and innocence in the face of man's most destructive folly affect him in a way that alters his life forever."--
