Synopsis: Cuchulain, a great warrior king, reluctantly swears loyalty to King Conchubar to consolidate a defense against a common enemy, Queen Aoife, with whom Cuchulain had once had a passionate affair. During the ceremony to make official the agreement between Cuchulain and Conchubar, a young stranger appears and requests to battle Cuchulain.
