Elizabeth wishes to find the Sins in order to clear their names and liberate Liones from the evil clutches of the Holy Knights. She first finds Meliodas, the leader of the Sins and the protagonist of the entire series. Eventually they gather all of the Sins, clear their names and free the kingdom from the Holy Knights. However, when one problem is solved, yet another one will arise. As it turns out, even the Holy Knights were being manipulated by yet another group! However, I cannot say anymore or I will ruin the story. So you must watch or read the series in order to find out more about this legendary tale!
