Synopsis

The knight Agilulfo is among the best paladins following Charlemagne. Moved by noble warrior ideals and superhuman war skills, he is nothing more than an empty armor, animated by an unwavering will. His crusade is intertwined with the stories of the brave Bradamante, in love with him, of the squire Gurdulù, a commoner "who is there, but who does not know he is there", and of the young Rambaldo, who went to war to avenge his father's death.
