The story of nobleman-turned-outlaw hero who was was crowned king of Scots in the 14th century.


Following a series of military losses, with his army in tatters and the success of his rebellion in doubt, Robert retreats from the battlefield.  Alone, injured, and pursued by fortune-seekers intent on collecting a bounty placed on his head by King Edward of England, he finds refuge in the croft of a peasant woman and the three children in her care – a teenage nephew, a young niece, and her own son.  They care for him, forging a powerful bond, even though their clan is aligned with England. This connection inspires Robert with a deeper understanding of the patriotism of ordinary Scots, which drives his passionate return to the national stage and, ultimately, to victory and independence.
