Plot Summary

A travelling troupe of jousters and performers are slowly cracking under the pressure of hick cops, financial troubles and their failure to live up to their own ideals. The group's leader, King Billy, is increasingly unable to maintain his warrior's rule while the Black Knight is being tempted away to LA and stardom, as they all have to ask why they were here in the first place.

Quotes Linet: Everybody here made a conscious, adult decision to be here. To be with you. When you go crazy, you force them to rethink that decision. You've got to...
Billy: Compromise.
Linet: Change doesn't have to mean compromise. We're bigger now. Things are different. Christ, we've got an overhead.
Billy: Publicity helps the overhead by bringing in more crowds, more suckerheaded American driftwood that can't tell the difference between me and Jim Jones, or Charles Manson, or the Great Wallenda. That kid... that kid thinks I'm Evel Knievel!
Linet: That kid thinks you're Billy Davis! Sir William the Knight! You're his hero!
Billy: I'm not trying to be a hero! I'm fighting the dragon!
