An old ring with an ancestral power must be destroyed in order to keep it from falling in the hands of the Dark Lord Sauron. Young Hobbit Frodo Baggins (Christopher Guard) will be the chosen one for the mission. In one of the biggest adventures ever told, he will embark through the Middle Earth along with companions such as wizard Gandalf the Grey (William Squire) or warriors Aragorn (John Hurt) and Boromir (Michael Graham Cox). The fate of this magic world depends on their job. This is the first adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's famous novels and is based upon books 'The Fellowship of the Ring' and 'The Two Towers'. The film was helmed by Ralph Bakshi, one of the icons of adult animation and author of 'Wizards' or 'Fritz the Cat'.
