Winston, a common thief, witnesses the kidnapping of the Kingdom of Olim’s beloved Princess Elena by the King’s trusted advisor Janus.  Winston and his quick-witted friend Barnaby, a servant girl Agnes, a lady-in-waiting to the princess Clemmence, and a slightly insane fugitive Dimitri attempt to warn King John of the plot. The King refuses to listen to their warnings, so they are forced to try and save the princess themselves. Intrigue, people pretending to be someone they are not, and jester antics all lead to a surprising conclusion.  Out of this upheaval rise many unlikely heroes.
