The continuing story of the Crawley family, wealthy owners of a large estate in the English countryside in the early twentieth century. The film, set in 1927, depicts a royal visit to the Crawley family’s stately home in Yorkshire. As royal staff members descend on Downton, an assassin has also arrived and attempts to kill the monarch.
