Betrothed, a Crusades Romance (Screenplay)

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.
