Actors: Peter MacNicol, Caitlin Clarke, Ralph Richardson


A kingdom in a medieval land lives in fear of a dragon that demands a horrific tribute: regular sacrifices of young maidens, chosen by lottery to appease the beast. This grim ritual is overseen by a callous king who keeps his own daughter secure from harm, while his subjects live in terror of being selected. As desperation grows, a young sorcerer's apprentice, Galen, with more idealism than experience, finds himself thrust into the center of this crisis when a grief-stricken father seeks the help of his aging mentor to end the dragon's tyranny.

Galen's determination to defeat the dragon leads him on a perilous journey, equipped with little more than raw talent, a magical amulet, and a desire to see the end of human sacrifices. Along the way, he is joined by Valerian, a headstrong young woman with her own personal stake in the battle. Together they navigate a landscape fraught with danger, intrigue, and betrayal, testing the limits of their courage and resourcefulness against a foe that embodies destruction. Their fight becomes not only a struggle for survival but a challenge to the corrupt system that feeds the dragon's power.
