Adventure, action and danger await 12-year-old Brendan (newcomer Evan McGuire) who must fight Vikings and a serpent god to find a crystal and complete the legendary Book of Kells.
Brendan is hard at work with his uncle, Abbott Cellach (Brendan Gleeson) and the other monks, helping to strengthen the abbey walls as protection against the Viking raids. But a new life of adventure begins with the arrival of Brother Aidan (Mick Lally), a celebrated master illuminator who initiates Brendan into the art of illumination, awakening his hidden, but extraordinary talents.
In order to finish the magnificent book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a secret quest that will take him for the first time ever, beyond the abbey walls into the enchanted forest where dangerous mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling (Christen Mooney), a mysterious young white wolf/girl, who will become his closest friend and helper.
