They believe in freedom and tolerance but for 13th Century Catholics, the free-loving Cathar nation in southern France is a threat to the very existence of their church. A cunning Pope's plan inspires a genocidal campaign to murder them all. With a young knight's quest for love and a cleric who's lost his soul, the bloody crusdade almost succeeds. Except for a single life. The last Cathar.
