On a wintry evening in 12th century Chignon, France, the British royal family has gathered under one roof to celebrate the Christmas season by maneuvering and negotiating the terms of kingly succession. A battle of wits and words ensues, blurring the lines between right and might, love and hate, and the personal and the political. Tensions rise as the characters strike deals with, make promises to, and declare war on one another.
