The Black Knight

Jack Bronson lives in a part-time virtual world. Bullied at school and living with his single mum who is struggling to meet her mortgage payment. So every chance he gets, Jack escapes into the world of computer games – via his fearless avatar, the Black Knight.

The ‘Warrior’s Gate’

One day, Mr Chang, the antiques dealer, offers him a family heirloom – a mysterious Chinese chest. Little does Jack know that the beautiful box that so intrigues him is actually a 'warrior’s gate', a magical portal into the mesmerising world of ancient China.

Saving the Princess

Then came a night when warrior Zhao suddenly appears in Jack’s room and entrusts him with the great task of guarding Princess Sulin. When Sulin is kidnapped, Jack leaps into the enchanted chest and travels back to ancient China.

With the help of Zhao and a trickster wizard named Wu, they set off on a coming-of-age journey across a vast, spectacular landscape littered width villains and obstacles, to save Sulin from Arun, the evil barbarian warlord.
