England 1603: Queen Elizabeth I is dead and James I is king, the first Scottish monarch to sit on the British throne. The queen’s legacy lives on with the country still at war with Catholicism, and King James is in danger with several unsuccessful attempts on his life having been made. However, a group of provincial English Catholics led by Robert Catesby ambitiously plot in secret to blow up the House of Lords and take the life of the new king. Their story has become legend.
