Young slacker Hal has become King Henry V, and must prove he is ready to rule. What better way than to invade France! War, however comes at a cost, and the young king struggles with self-doubt, sagging morale, cruel treachery, and the crazy antics of his old friends Nym and Pistol.
Ultimately, all meet at the famous Battle of Agincourt, and the English, though greatly outnumbered, win back their land thanks to Henry's stirring leadership.
Victorious in war, Henry now desires the heart of French Princess Catherine. Confident in charm- if not the French language- Henry ultimately triumphs in uniting the kingdoms in marriage and returns home a true king.
