Frankish Empire, 802 AD. Christian warrior Bradamante puts honor above all else. But when she meets handsome Saracen knight Ruggiero on the field of battle, forbidden passion ignites. With her lover pledged to the enemy, she fears duty and honor must keep them apart forever...

When a sorcerer imprisons the knight, Bradamante discovers two prophecies about their future with devastating consequences. She can indeed wed Ruggiero but doing so would seal his death. If she forsakes her love, then she'll cause the downfall of the Christian empire.

With the fate of her people at stake, will Bradamante choose to doom the innocent masses or the life of her one true love?
