Stone of Destiny

Synopsis

The Stone of Destiny was used for centuries in the coronations of the monarchs of Scotland until it was captured in 1296 by Edward I and taken to Westminster Abbey where it resided for over six and a half centuries. Stone of Destiny tells the true story of how on Christmas Day 1950, four Scottish students took the stone from Westminster Abbey, hid it in Kent for a few weeks before returning it north to Scotland. It is based on the book The Taking of the Stone of Destiny, written by Ian Hamilton, the leader of the students.
