The people of Holand are bitterly crushed by the tyrannical rule of Earl Hadd, whose armies of spies, informers, secret police and cruel rent-collectors terrorize the countryside. Mitt, the son of a Free Holander, has grown up with the idea of joining the Freedom Fighters and avenging the wrongs done to his father. but when his part in the plot to assassinate the tyrant Earl goes wildly wrong, he finds himself on the run - and the only place to hide is in the midst of his enemies...
