Teenage maiden forcibly betrothed to unimaginative elderly knight falls in love with another during his Crusades absence, only to be faced with his unexpected return, as a changed and softened  man after his encounter with the Muslim Saladin: a drama of the historic clash between Muslim and Christian, east  and west, old and young, that – inspiration  for our times too – is transcended  by the sweet friendship and understanding between Norman knight and Muslim leader.
