Inspired by Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, this imaginative tale stars William, a lowborn squire who uses the untimely death of his master to disguise himself as a knight. After displaying a natural talent for jousting in his new identity, William decides to continue the ruse, and goes on the road as a knight with the help of his friends. In their travels, they meet an unknown author named Chaucer, who agrees to forge the genealogy papers that will allow William to pass himself off as a real knight. With his new identity, William achieves fame, adventure and romance.
