This enchanting Oscar-nominated animation is a triumph of innovative hand-drawn techniques. The story begins in medieval Ireland, where 12-year-old Brendan has come to live with his uncle, the Abbot Cellach, in his monastery. When new monk Aidan takes refuge with them after Vikings have ransacked his monastery, Brendan becomes fascinated by an unfinished illuminated manuscript Aidan has brought with him - the Book of Kells. However, it's not long before invaders also threaten their walls and it's up to Brendan to protect the magical book and seek the enchanted crystal which will complete it.
