Inspired by "The Canterbury Tales," as well as the story of Ulrich von
Lichtenstein, this is the story of William, a young squire with a gift
for jousting. After his master dies suddenly, the squire hits the road
with his cohorts Roland and Wat. On the journey, they stumble across an
unknown writer, Chaucer. William, lacking a proper pedigree, convinces
Chaucer to forge genealogy documents that will pass him off as a knight.
With his newly-minted history in hand, the young man sets out to prove
himself a worthy knight at the country's jousting competition, and finds
romance along the way.
