Great evil threatens the peaceful land of Prydain. Taran, a lowly Assistant Pig Keeper, must battle a diabolical fiend or face the destruction of his beloved home. Accompanied by a host of companions as loyal as they are strange, Taran discovers that being a hero means much more than facing danger. His courageous heart struggles with questions of good and evil, nobility and common birth until ultimately he is forced to make the most crucial decision of his life.
