A boy and his doy :) England 1294. 12 year old Adam wants to be a minstrel like his father Roger. When Roger returns from minstrel training in France, he takes Adam with him on the road (the true home of a minstrel, according to Roger). Roger loses his pay and his horse in a dice game to another minstrel Jenkin. Jenkin is unhappy with the horse and steals Nicky, Adam's red spaniel. Roger and Adam chases after Jenkins but become separated. Adam continues searching for Nicky and Roger everywhere he goes until he finally finds both. Yay! a classic in which the dog does not die!
