About this movie

A real-life, contemporary Robin Hood adventure that grabbed headlines around the world ... College student Ian Hamilton was a dedicated nationalist who deeply resented "England's subjugation of Scotland." Garnering the support of three fellow students in 1950 -- and despite their bungling maneuvers -- Hamilton managed to reignite Scottish national pride with a daring raid on the very heart of England. The idealistic band breached Britain's venerable Westminster Abbey to secure the Stone of Scone, a national treasure, upon which Scottish kings had been coronated for centuries. The fabled and revered stone had been carted off more than 700 years earlier by the army of England's King Edward I, becoming a prized possession of the United Kingdom. Eventually turning the mythical relic over to Scottish authorities, Hamilton and his band were never prosecuted ... instead celebrated as folk heroes. Based on the book, The Taking of the Stone of Destiny, with a cameo appearance by the real Ian Hamilton.
