To escape enemy bombing, two soldiers take refuge in a deserted church where they discover a manuscript dating back to the fifth century when barbarian hordes ravaged the Spanish countryside. It tells of two warriors, Roderico, who opposes war and useless bloodshed, who is slain by Klingsor, who takes over as the tribal chief. The dead man's widow flees to seek the Holy Mountain where the Knights of the Grail guard the Sacred Spear and the Holy Grail, but she fails to find it. She dies but her young son, Parsifal, survives and reaches maturity free from worldly temptations, evil and cruelty.
