The Secret of the Kells is a unique and enchanting animated tale about the power of belief and imagination. Set in medieval Ireland, Brendan is a young monk living in a monastery with his uncle, the Abbot. The monks have been trained to fear the world beyond the high brick, monastery walls. And then one day a traveler arrives. He is in the midst of creating a beautiful book filled with intricate art and profound words. All he needs to complete his masterpiece is special colored ink that can only be found in berries located in the deep, dark woods just outside the walls. Brendan swallows his fear and takes on the daunting task, only to find, to his surprise, unexpected friends, and the stunning courage to defend the world from a looming danger that threatens to engulf humanity into eternal darkness.
