Recounting the love-hate relationship between 12th century British monarch Henry ll and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket, the film is unique in its use of mainly non-professional actors to tell the story of Becket's temptations before he was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. This rarely-seen film features Eliot s voice as well as music by the internationally renowned composer Làszló Lajtha.
