Synopsis
Frodo embarks on a great adventure when he receives the ring of all power that is coveted by the evil Sauron of Mordor. With Mordor's black riders after him, Frodo struggles to keep the ring from returning to its owner, which would mean the end of Middle-earth. The wizard Gandalf, and friends Merry, Sam, and Pippin join forces with Frodo to help him on his quest.
