In this interpretation of the classic tale, Arthur is a cavalry officer in the Roman army defending Hadrian's Wall against rebellious Britons. He and his troops are expecting to be relieved but are instead sent on a risky mission to rescue the Roman family of Marius Honorius, who proves a despicable torturer of pagans. Arthur frees one of them, Guinevere, who in turn brokers a truce between Arthur and the Britons so as to ward off an invading Saxon army.
