According to press notes, "After the massacre of her village, Herianne embarks on a journey through a mystical land to rescue her family and fulfill her life-long ambition to become a Grand Wizard. Accompanied by her mentor and three 'Teachers of the Scrolls,' Herianne must overcome the evil that enshrouds the land of Dragnor and confront the malevolence that seeks to devour her innate power. With time and a conspiring foe against her, Herianne is forced to choose relationships wisely as she completes her passage from adolescence to womanhood. In a final battle of good versus evil, events beyond her control, Herianne realizes that great reward often comes at great sacrifice."
