Tristan & Isolde Update

Now, this is great news! I’ve found more about the plot and a pictures of Sophia at ApolloMedia (see the picture in the gallery):

The Irish are ruling England under the frightening reign of King Cuchulainn. His general Morholt carries out the king’s political actions in bloody manners. During a massacre among the Englishmen Tristan’s father is killed. The boy grows up at his uncle’s and shows he has both the leading qualities and the passion necessary to unite the trunks.

Having grown up to be a notable knight, Tristan and his “gang” uses the tactics of the “small needle passes”. In result, an enraged Cuchulainn sends his general Morholt to “befrieden” the Englishmen. However, Morholt is subjected to Tristan in the duel. And Tristan is fatally hurt by the poisoned sword of his opponent. Following old tradition, the allegedly dead one is put in a small boat and led to sea and only by coincidence doesn’t burn in fire. After a long journey Tristan strands in Ireland, where Cuchulainn’s daughter Isolde finds, hides and nurses the critically ill one. Isolde was promised to Morholt, although against her will. She finds Morholt’s sword on Tristan’s boat – a safe indication of his death. Tristan and Isolde fall in love with each other, but Tristan doesn’t know that she is the daughter of his biggest enemy, the Irish king…

The complex and exciting material is based on one of the oldest love stories of the world, the classic epic of Tristan and Isolde, which is about love, loyalty, debt and betrayal. The tragic lovers rank among the greatest figures in world literature.
