During king Edward I's war against the Scots, champion knight Wilkin Brattle was betrayed and left for dead by traitor rivals, now Baron Ventris and his right hand, chamberlain Milus Corbett, who terrorize their Welsh county subjects and extort neighbor baron Pryce for access to the sea. Wilkin remains tormented by nightmares, despite fidelity to a pledge in a battle field vision to abandon his sword for a higher cause, hiding his past even for true love Petra, pregnant of his heir. Wilkin only counsels the hooded rebels to steal back crushing taxes, but when the baron mounts a punitive expedition, burning the village in blood, takes charge of mission to revenge their loved ones at all cost, assuming the identity of slain traveling executioner Maddox, whose sadism extended to his wife and kid son Luca.
