This mini-series brings to life Scottish patriots William Wallace and Robert Bruce and the Scottish unrest and turbulent times in 1296 after King Edward I of England invaded Scotland and imposed English rule. Edward I's reign over Scotland was never peaceable and Scottish discontent was widespread. In 1297, the country erupted in an open revolt as national resistance developed into a war of independence during which William Wallace and Robert Bruce played leading roles.
