Synopsis It's the year 500 A.D. in deepest, darkest Denmark. A jealous, decapitating monster -- the unstoppable Grendel -- terrorizes the drunken revelers of mead-soaked Heorot. Fearless Princess Freawaru and her sidekick, the cynical scribe Shaper, journey in search a hero who can save their people. But it turns out true heroes are rarer than bloodthirsty monsters. And when famed imp-slayer Beowulf rides to Heorot's rescue, her true agenda could prove more dangerous than Grendel himself.
