After the fall of Rome, visionary warlord Marke (Rufus Sewell) seeks to unite the squabbling English tribes to form one strong nationand defeat brutal Irish King Donnchadh.
But when Lord Marke’s greatest and most loyal knight, Tristan (James Franco), falls in love with Isolde (Sophia Myles), a beautiful Irish woman, it threatens to destroy the fragile truce and ignite a war.
The Irish king Donnchadh (David O’Hara) discovers this and sends troops to attack a Jutish castle where a treaty between the British tribes is being discussed.
The raid claims the lives of the castle’s lord and his wife, and Marke saves their son Tristan at the cost of losing a hand.
Feeling compassion for the young boy whose father loyally supported him, Marke welcomes Tristan (James Franco) into his home and regards him as a son.
Tristan grows to be a fierce, courageous warrior whose loyalty to Marke is not that of a knight to his lord, but rather a son to his father.
