Plot: Laredo, 22nd August, 1496. A fleet sets sail for Flanders. Its mission, to carry Princess Joan to the court at Brussels where she is to be wed to the monarch later to be known as Philip the Handsome.
Sparks fly at their first meeting. One look is enough to touch off mutual attraction and uncontrollable desire. They forget their political obligations and abandon themselves to their emotions. However, destiny has other plans in store for them.
The death of her elder brother and sister and her mother Isabella the Catholic leave Princess Joan as the Queen of Castile and heir to the crown of Aragon.
These events culminate in two battles: one political, between the Flemish and Castilian nobility, and the other, much more grievous, is the one Joan will wage in her marriage bed. -- © 2002 Sony Pictures Classics
