An epic and incendiary thriller about the Gunpowder Plot, weaving together the lives of kings, terrorists, priests and spies.
It's 1605, and England is riven between Catholic and Protestant. An aristocratic group of young religious fanatics has recruited a mercenary, Guy Fawkes, to strike at the heart of the English Government. But under the ambivalent rule of the new King, James I, fresh from Scotland, no one can be trusted and their plot is going to be turned against the very people it was meant to save.
