London, 1716. Lord William Nithsdale has been found guilty of treason after fighting alongside the other rebels against the British crown. For his crime, he is sent to the infamous Tower of London, where he awaits his punishment: the executioner's blade. Upon learning of the Lord's death sentence, his wife, Lady Winifred Maxwell, sets out to free him from the "Bloody Tower." She plots and plans to pull off a daring and dangerous breakout. If her idea works, Lord Nithsdale might just escape his deadly fate. If it doesn't, both their heads will roll!
