A messenger stumbles into a conspiracy that would destroy a kingdom. With time against him he must find a way to reach the King.
16th Century England, a country at peace with a King many years in power but that peace is about to be shattered.
There is a conspiracy afoot to tear down the King's proposed alliance with France. The conspirators are shadows, unknown figures moving among the court. Who would you trust among the throng of fortune seeking, greed stricken courtiers?

Trying to find the courage to end his misery it seems fate would intervene and do it for him when a giant madman intent on his murder strikes.
But when confronted with an easy way out or a chance to lay demons to rest Cunningham discovers a strength he did not know he possessed and a woman who could perhaps heal those wounds that only love and companionship can mend.
Can Thomas Cunningham rise from oblivion and save a kingdom?
