The story introduces us to Pippin, the eldest son of King Charlemagne of the Franks. Pippin is the well-educated crowned prince, but he believes that there is more to life than warfare and longs for a more fulfilling life. With the help and direction of the Leading Player and a troupe of ambitious assistants, Pippin sets off on an entertaining journey filled with violence, betrayal, tragedy and love in order to find ultimate happiness.
