Robin of Loxley murdered and the band of outlaws in Sherwood scattered, Earl's son Robert of Huntingdon is chosen by forest god Herne the Hunter to continue Robin's work and lead the band of outlaws in Sherwood. Huntingdon, though appalled by the way the lords of the land treat the lower classes, is however not prepared to give up his titles, money and privileges in order to live in poverty, and moreover as an outcast, in Sherwood Forest. He swiftly changes his mind, however, when a pale and broken-hearted Lady Marion, whose rich father bought her pardon with the King after her husband's murder, comes to Huntingdon Castle for a dance and is slighted, ridiculed, and finally kidnapped by the other guests because of her notorious past.
