Explores an enduring legacy of 16th-century English history regarding Henry VIII’s ambitions to divorce his wife so that he could marry his mistress and potentially have an heir and the Chancellor, Sir Thomas More, who defied him and refused to support the divorce. More is framed by political intrigue in the court and is eventually tried and found guilty of treason.
