The film is set during the 13th century in Scotland, where King Edward I of England has invaded the country. The King makes the Scottish nobles believe they are going to come to an agreement, but kills them instead. 
William Wallace is a witness to the massacre and is taken by his uncle, who provides him with an education elsewhere. Several years later, the King provides his right hand, Primae Noctis, land in Scotland and arranges for him to take a recently married Scottish woman into his bed.  Wallace returns to Scotland and falls in love with Murron MacClannough, his childhood sweetheart. They secretly get married in order for her not to spend the night with the English lord.  
Wallace ends up fighting many soldiers after they try to rape Murron and try to escape, but Murron is taken into custody and killed in front of everyone by the sheriff. Wallace and other villagers react to the murder and kill the sheriff. 
After wanting to live a peaceful life, Wallace is determined to bring down the English and his name starts to spread through the country, while many Scots join him in his rebellion. Wallace and his army win many battles and he begins to look for help in Robert the Bruce, who is the son of nobleman Robert the Elder, who may become the next king of Scotland. Robert wants nothing more than to help Wallace, but his father’s plan on becoming king is more important.  Wallace ends up dying for his country, but Robert finishes what he started.
