‘Excalibur’ Plot Synopsis

Excalibur is a mystical sword of power bestowed to Uther Pendragon by the powerful wizard named Merlin in order to unite the land under one King. However, lust for another woman brings turmoil, and eventually Excalibur is cast into a stone. Only he who can draw it again, will be King. A humble squire named Arthur, who is Uther’s illegitimate son, draws it, and brings peace and prosperity to the Kingdom. Unfortunately, that same insatiable lust (along with Arthur’s deceitful half-sister, Morgana) will tear the land apart once more.
