Prince Hal spends his days carousing in taverns with criminals and lowly commoners, much to the dismay of his father, King Henry IV. Winding from the Boar's Head Tavern to the shadows of Gad’s Hill, Hal’s path to the throne may be unusual, but it eventually leads him to the one place where questions of honor and reputation come to a head: the battlefield.
