El Cid is the best soldier in Castile. When he is unfairly banished from court, the Spanish hero sets off on a campaign against the Moorish invaders of Southern Spain to win back favour. After many battles and conquests, El Cid is forgiven. But he comes home to face one last terrible battle and, ultimately, his death.
