Based on an epic poem written more than 1,000 years ago, this fantasy-drama is set in a fictional land, where humans and creatures live a life of danger, excitement and adventure. Fearless warrior Beowulf returns to his home of Herot to make peace with his past. In search of a community to fight for, he soon becomes wrongly accused of murder. He makes a vow to find the true perpetrator and avenge the death of his fellow kinsmen. As he upholds the law and protects Herot from danger, Beowulf becomes the town's tough-but-unconventional hero. With themes of power, revenge, greed, courage and love, the heroes and villains struggle with their inner conflicts as well as their places within the wider community.
