[tab_group] [tab title=”SYNOPSIS”]

Somewhere near you there is a band of brothers fighting for justice – seeking to rid the land of evil and return hope to the mistreated. It’s a tale that’s been told a thousand times – although never quite like this. There are heroes and villains, sword fights and explosions, love and loss. A cast of two breathes new life into this beloved tale with exuberance, athleticism, and heart.
