1242. On a dark night, travelers from across France cross paths at an inn and begin to tell stories of three children whose adventures take them on a chase through France with knights, kings, and dragons. On the run to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned, their quest drives them forward to a final showdown at Mont Saint-Michel, where all will come to question if these children can perform the miracles of saints.
