Little Knights’ Tale adventure comedy brings us to the dark recesses of a mighty castle and a nearby manor in close neighborhood, surrounded by a deep forest. The peaceful living is disturbed by an unexpected event. Martin, a virtuous knight and a caring father of five children, is denounced for witchcraft and plundering expeditions. And so he departs for the royal court to defend his honor, leaving the fortress in the hands of his eldest son Peter and his siblings. He does not have the faintest idea that the denunciation was the work of his envious, greedy and totally despicable neighbor Albrecht the Bloody Nose who wants nothing else but to take possession of the land. It seems the evil is close to victory. But Albrecht soon realises that outwitting a bunch of little knights is sometimes harder than defeating an army… Will the kids succeed in defeating a much stronger enemy?
