400 AD Scotland, Drest mac Erp ruled the Pictish tribes of Scotland with and iron fist and ruthless cruelty. But hope comes in the most unlikely of places. Within the prison of his own fortress young Nechtan has lived for as long as he can remember. But Nechtan doesn't remember much. This is the story of how their lives, and the forces behind them, collide in a battle for freedom.
