Conquering Kings (2013)

Full Film (via Project Aaron)


Davian (Trisdon Runnels) is a prince who lives off in the woods with his bodyguard and mentor Phillip (Michael Randall). Davian is hidden from the world because he is the rightful heir to the throne, and many others such as the self-proclaimed king Camien wish to kill Davian. Being young and rebellious, Davian disobeys Phillip's rules and finds comfort in Vesperelda (Victoria Rigby), a supposed lady of the night who is more than she appears. Elsewhere in this fantasy realm surrounding Pumatown, Anika the witch (Billie Joyce) is about to be offered up to God as a sacrifice by diabolical priest Taggert (Lamar Allen). Luckily, she manages to evade this unfortunate fate and finds her companion in the blind swordsman Depardieu (Josh Powell). Depardieu's encounter with Davian's father is what lost him his vision, but he does not feel resentment towards the young prince. These intertwining story lines boil down to a battle that will decide the future of the kingdom.
