Marooned on a sandbank, a boy faces certain death. With the sea closing in and the current about to drag him to a watery grave, his final wish is to see heaven. Waking in a strange bed, the boy meets an old man. It is Arthur, the warrior king of legend, and from his lips the boy hears of Camelot, chivalry, magic, evil and betrayal.
