Piers (or Pierre as he wants to be called) is desperate to escape the dirty, tedious labor of his father's blacksmith shop. So when a knight shows up and says he is on "the quest," Piers begs to go along. Soon he is off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible. However, Pier's knight quickly runs into some difficulties and is slain by an odd character named Parsifal, who is on his own quest. Piers has no other choice but to join him. Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met and doesn't behave "knightly" as all. As their journey continues, Piers and Parsifal are drawn into the Quest for the elusive Holy Grail, and slowly, as the Quest continues, Piers begins to realize what being a knight really means.
