An historical drama about Mary, Queen of Scots, and her imprisonment on the forbidding island fortress of Lochleven in 1567.
Mary is brought to Lochleven by Lords Lindsay and Ruthven, and entrusted to the care of Sir William Douglas and his family. She is nursed back to health by Lady Margaret and two servants, Kate and Lizzie. Lindsay and Ruthven force her to abdicate in favour of her infant son James. She is visited by the Regent Moray, who tells her that he plans to have her confined to a convent. Following a failed escape attempt with George Douglas, the Laird's younger brother, she finally escapes with the help of 10 year-old Willy Douglas.
