In the intersection of history and legend lies the story of William Wallace, who led his nation into battle against the English in the years around 1300. King Edward, popularly known as "Longshanks" has allowed the English barons who hold Scotland for him to claim the 'Prima Nocta.' Wallace and his love Murron marry secretly, but his guerrilla activities bring Murron to the attention of the English. They set a trap for Wallace, and the failure of the scheme sets Wallace on the path of both bloody revenge, and open rebellion against the tyrannical rule of the English. The quest to free Scotland from English rule is complicated by the machinations of various Scottish nobles, bribes from King Edward, and sly political treachery at the hands of Robert the Bruce, whose father has his own plans to further. Despite being taken prisoner, and put to a traitor's death, William Wallace is remembered to this day as a hero of Scotland

Lew Wasserman started in the entertainment industry working the door at Cleveland speak-easies and rose to control a Hollywood empire. With Chicagoan Jules Stein, Wasserman became an agent, and made Music Corp. of America one of the first true media conglomerates. Wasserman's gift for perceiving industry trends long before his rivals led to MCA's creation of Universal Pictures and Universal City. Wasserman was notoriously secretive, doing no interviews and leaving behind no written materials, so the film combines research, archival images, and new interviews of Hollywood insiders to tell a great American story of power, commerce, and deal making
