Synopsis

When his master dies unexpectedly, Medieval squire William Thatcher decides to try his luck at jousting. Lacking an acceptable pedigree, he enlists the help of his friend Chaucer, who, in his pre-"Cantebury Tales" days, supplements his income by forging genealogy papers. With his newly-minted history in hand, young William sets out to prove himself a worthy knight at the country's jousting competition and finds romance along the way.
