Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan's determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil?
The Secret of Kells was directed by Tomm Moore and Nora Twomey. It stars the voice talents of Evan McGuire, Christen Mooney, Mick Lally, and Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Beowulf, The Village).
