Square Enix has released a description of the movie:

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is one of the parts of Final Fantasy XV Universe, alongside the main game, the Brotherhood anime series, Justice Monsters Five and A King’s Tale. The movie takes place parallel to the main game’s story, telling the story from the perspective of Noctis’ father, King Regis.
