Summary
The Mongol. The Human Weapon. The Black Warrior. All are part of an era when codes of honor became codes of conflict. All are ready to fight to the death in a time of Hearts and Armour.

Tanya Roberts heads a talented international cast in this sword-clanging adventure. She plays a Moorish princess desired by a Christian warrior and swept up in a turbulent showdown of magic, armour and valiant knights.

In the spellbinding tradition of Excalibur which centered on Arthurian legends of the north, Hearts and Armour brings to the screen the medieval myths of sun-drenched southern Europe. In a titanic clash of cultures, Christians and Moors cross swords in brutal combat, playing out entangled destinies – and creating legends that would endure through the ages.
