Based on an ancient Celtic myth, the Black Knight is an allegorical tale about a King and his three sons. A mysterious knight appears to challenge the knights of the realm to mortal combat. At last the King himself rides forth, but after a long and furious battle he is overcome and must give his three sons to the victor to perform a dangerous quest. Thus begins an adventure full of magic cloaks and singing harps, talking trees and sudden storms. The Black Knight uses the ancient language of symbols to help today's youth discover for themselves the hidden strength and courage that lies within them.
