1813. Major Sharpe's old enemy, Major Ducos manipulates a beautiful young marquesa into falsely accusing Sharpe of rape. Her husband calls Sharpe out in a duel. But when the husband is found dead the next morning, Sharpe is arrested and brought before a court martial, and it seems not even Patrick Harper and the Chosen Men can save Sharpe from a hanging, or rescue his honour.

The scene in which Sharpe and the Marquesa Dorida are thrown from horseback into the stream was an unscripted accident, but director 'Clegg, Tom' liked it so much he kept it in the movie. See more
Can I ask you where we're going, sir?
Over the hills, sergeant, and far away.
Right. Which hills and how far?
Follows Sharpe's Eagle
Over the Hills and Far Away
