"What shall we hang - the holly or each other?" 
 
It's Christmas 1183 and the Plantagenets are meeting up for a family reunion that puts the "feud" into "feudal". King Henry II of England has commanded his estranged wife, Eleanor of Aquitane, and their three sons, Richard, Geoffrey and John, to spend the festive season with him. However, his mistress, Princess Alais, and her brother, the young King Philip of France, will also be there. Will Henry finally name who is to succeed him on the English throne? Their yuletide celebration soon turns into a black comedy of deceit, betrayal, power games and scorching wit.
