A powerful story of heroism, love and betrayal, set against the backdrop of the epic and terrible five-month siege of Christian Malta in 1565, when 40,000 Muslim warriors invaded the island.
The invaders battle plan was simple - annihilate the devout Order of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem; the last of the Crusaders, sworn to protect Malta to the last drop of their noble Christian blood.
