The king is killed in battle. Mad from grief his young queen flees deep into the woods to raise their infant son, the young prince Parzival, as far from the temptations of the world as possible.
But in the absence of king and queen, the land soon lies waste and an evil sorcerer casts a spell on the land, that can only be lifted by someone who understands the secret of the grail.
As he comes of age, the strong but foolish Parzival must unravel the secrets of his family to become the knight who can reclaim the grail and heal both country and family.
This is a modern retelling of the original story of the grail, bringing its essential wisdom to the fore. The story is arguable one of the most influential narratives in western spiritual traditions and the source of inspiration for countless works of art.
