Movie setting at 14th century France, where in mid of The Hundred Year War (1328 – 1453). In this era, female oppression is sort of norm in the community, where female would not voice out or complain about it. Same time, all the men fight for their pride and honour, which is much more important than Gold or wealth. We also can see those who can do better diplomatic skill earn their position faster.
