In a mythical kingdom, the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda, plots to kill all infants, so that the newborn princess Elora will never take over the throne. But a midwife sets the baby adrift in a river, and she lands in Nelwyn, a peaceful village of trolls, fairies and little folk.
Then, in the midst a war, the dwarf Willow and Madmartigan, a swashbuckling warrior, go on a fantastic adventure to return Elora to her rightful home.
