King John was gone from England, leaving his brother to care for his realm. A weak and vile man, the country soon found itself in disarray. Sickness and starvation spread quickly throughout the country as the wealthy barons take what they want with impunity. Only one stood alone, and remained loyal to his King and Country. Angered by the actions of fellow nobility, this Knight gathers a group of trusted friends and alone they strive to protect the people of the kingdom, from the tyranny of Richard, his Cardinals, and any who choose to harm the innocent. One evening, after being captured by none other than a group of Royal guards, some of the brothers are rescued by a young boy, who disappears before his identity is known. But, all is not as it seems. Is the youth to be trusted, or it is all a trap? When the truth is revealed the race begins to reach the coast and save their King from the treacherous barons and the King's own brother. Will they all survive, or will the Band of Brothers fall.
