1564, the Kingdom of Granada. After years of Christian oppression, the Moors take arms against their masters and daub the white houses of Sierra Nevada with the blood of their victims. Amidst the conflict is young Hernando, the son of an Arab woman and the Christian priest who raped her. Despised by the townsfolk and by his own stepfather for his 'tainted' heritage, he is banished to live in the stables. When Hernando meets Fatima, a beautiful girl with black eyes, she becomes the love of his life. But his stepfather accuses Hernando of Christian sympathies and condemns him to slavery. In despair, Hernando hatches a plan to unite the two warring faiths - and the two halves of his identity.
