The Sheriff is ordered by the King to put a stop to Robin Hood once and for all, or else Robert de Rainault will lose all his power as sheriff. Using threats to set up an ambush at Wickham, and bloodhounds to follow the outlaws desperate attempt to escape back into the depths of Sherwood, it soon evolves into a dramatic life-or-death chase through the forest. In the end, Robin finds himself alone and surrounded by soldiers on an open field, realising that he must make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save his band members and continue to protect the people of England.
