Henry V (Tom Hiddleston) has the makings of a fine king. The French ambassador brings a challenge from the French Dauphin. Inspired by his courtiers, Henry swears that he will, with all force, answer this challenge. The Chorus (John Hurt) tells of England’s preparations for war and Henry's army sails for France, where Henry and his meager forces prove victorious against all odds.
