The love that rocked an entire kingdom, the illicit affair between Queen Guinevere and Sir Lancelot has been immortalized by storytellers for generations. The rogue Lancelot is knighted by King Arthur after he bravely rescues Guinevere from odious captors. However, unbeknownst to the King, his favorite new member of the Roundtable is in hot pursuit of the Queen. Their adulterous love proves poisonous when it contributes to Arthur's demise and leaves the lovers regretful and racked with enduring guilt.
