Am Ostermorgen 1342 wird ein englisches Küstendorf von vier französischen Schiffen überfallen, angeführt von einem geheimnisvollen schwarzen Ritter, der sich "Harlekin" nennt. Schnell brennt der ganze Ort, und aus der Kirche wird ein Schatz gestohlen: eine alte Lanze, sie soll Sankt Georg gehört haben, dem Schutzheiligen der englischen Könige. Als einer der wenigen überlebt der Sohn des Pfarrers, der ihm im Sterben verrät: Der Mann in Schwarz ist ein Verwandter. Thomas schwört, den Frevel zu rächen. Doch er ahnt nicht, wie sehr sein Schicksal mit dem des Harlekins verbunden ist und wie gefährlich seine Reise wird. Denn der Feind scheint die mächtigste Waffe des Christentums zu besitzen: den Heiligen Gral.
