The plot is based on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’s poem. The poem “describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious green Knight,‘ who dares any knight to hit him with his axe if he would take a return blow in a year and a day,” according to Wikipedia.

“Gawain takes his strike and beheads him, at which point the Green Knight rises up, picks up his head, and reminds Gawain of the scheduled hour. Gawain displays gallantry and fidelity in his efforts to maintain his agreement until his honor is put into doubt by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight’s castle.”
