Justin (Highmore) lives in a time when bureaucrats rule and knights have been ousted. While his father (Molina) wants him to follow in his footsteps and become a lawyer, Justin defies the family and embarks on a quest to become a hero. Along the way he meets the beautiful, feisty Talia (Ronan), a wizard (Walliams), the handsome Sir Corlex (Banderas) and three monks who teach and test him in the ancient ways of the Knighthood.
