Overview

Kingdom of Heaven takes on the unwieldy Crusades by tracking the odyssey of a young French blacksmith, Balian of Ibelin, who seeks redemption in Jerusalem. As he struggles to live up to his unexpected nobility and knighthood, Balian becomes a pivotal voice of moderation between warmongering Crusaders who hold Jerusalem and Muslim general Saladin’s looming army. As the uneasy peace crumbles, Balian confronts excruciating decisions about how best to protect those caught in the crossfire.
