It is the year 707 CE and young Florinda goes to live at the Royal Court of Spain. When cruel King Roderick throws her into prison, she finds a clever way to get a message to her father, Count Julian in North Africa. Count Julian meets the Muslims and finds them good hearted and noble. After tricking Roderick into freeing his daughter, Julian joins forces with General Tarek ibn Ziyad by giving him four boats to overthrow the cruel king. The crossing of the Muslim army will change Spain forever. The Burning Boats deals with both historical facts and legend pertaining to the actual moments leading to and following through the conquest of Spain.
