The brightest and best musketeers of the King's Regiment, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, are dispatched by Captain Treville to find a missing musketeer carrying important letters on behalf of King Louis.

Meanwhile, d'Artagnan travels from his family farm in Gascony to Paris to petition the king, but his peaceful plans are turned upside down when he is forced to find the musketeers and seek vengeance for the brutal murder of a loved one.

Will d'Artagnan bring the murderer to justice and can the musketeers protect king and country? Or will the cardinal triumph with the help of the beautiful and dangerous Milady?
