Humble blacksmith Balian (Orlando Bloom), is locked in a personal struggle with his faith following the death of his wife and child. Balian's life is further rocked to the core following a visit from the legendary Knight of the Crusades, Godfrey of Ibelin (Academy Award® nominee Liam Neeson).
As Godfrey confesses to being Balian's father, he persuades Balian to join his allegiance to Christian King Baldwin IV (Academy Award® nominee Edward Norton) and join their Crusade to preserve King Baldwin's vision of peace - a Kingdom of Heaven in Jerusalem.
Although a fragile truce is presently maintained between the noble King and the legendary Muslim leader Saladin (Ghassan Massoud), the sly manipulations of power-hungry extremists threaten to destroy the delicate agreement. As leadership of the Crusading Knights and protection of the Kingdom of Heaven falls to the unprepared Balian, the leprosy-stricken King grows weaker while the dissidents step up their dirty tricks and plunge the region back into unrest.
Feeling the weight of the title that he has neither earned nor proved, Balian's emotions are further confused as he falls for the beautiful Sibylla (Eva Green, The Dreamers), sister of King Baldwin and wife of Guy de Luisignan, one of the driving forces for a war against the Muslim army. As the massive events unfold around him and thrust Jerusalem into one of the bloodiest battles in the history of the Crusades, it is Balian's faith, intelligence and desire for peace that helps him lead an army into the battle for the Kingdom of Heaven.
