Dean, a hip, girl chasing, urbanite has his life turned upside down in Central Park one morning when he meets the “dreamy” knight, Isabel, an enthusiastic “Lord of the Rings”-like role player dressed up in medieval-inspired garb and engaged in a serious sword fight. Determined to make her his next conquest, Dean infiltrates the group but must tackle a series of offbeat challenges to prove his chivalry and valor to the skeptical Isabel. He is thwarted at every turn by Roger, Isabel’s ex-boyfriend, who is now posing as a villainous Robin Hood dedicated to overthrowing “The Order”. In the battle of good versus evil, realities come crashing together.View pre-production video with director John Touhey below:
