HISTORICAL ADVENTURE. A Norman army marches through the North of England: burning, killing and laying waste to everything in its path. The Harrowing has begun. As towns and villages disappear under the Norman advance, five travellers fleeing ahead of this destruction are drawn together as refugees in their own country, journeying through a wasteland to seek sanctuary in the last Saxon stronghold. But are they fleeing the Normans or their own troubles? Priest, Lady, Servant, Warrior, Minstrel: each has their own story; each their own sin. As enemies close in, their past deeds catch up with them and they discover there is no sanctuary from fate.
