Knight Rusty likes to brag about his bravery even though he is not the typical hero. He prefers to live comfortable and without stress. Only when he realizes that he might loose his beloved damsel, Bo, he gets his act together. With the little fire dragon Coke by his side, Rusty not only frees Bo but the entire kingdom of Scrapland from the rule of the evil Knight.
