Magic, fantasy and Celtic mythology come together in a riot of color and dazzling details in a sweeping story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times. Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. One day a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the book, Brendan must embark on a dangerous quest through an enchanted forest. Features the voice of Brendan Gleeson. In English. (Tomm Moore & Nora Twomey; Ireland/France/Belgium; 2009; 78 min)
