A brutal civil war has broken out in England with the House of Lancaster and York fighting for control of the throne. In the midst of the unrest, the despotic Richard, Duke of Gloucester plots his own route to power, a dishonest, conspiratorial and murderous agenda that will lead to his inauguration as a dictatorial monarch. Surrounded by fascist iconography, the film openly draws from the aesthetic of the Third Reich, a stylistic choice that emphasizes pure evil at the heart of Richard's agenda.
