DRAGONKEEPER

The Film

Dark times in imperial China. Dragons, once friends and sages
allies of men, were hunted and locked in iron dungeons.
In a remote fortress in the mountains, a slave girl helps the last
of dragons and joins him in his fight to recover his most precious treasure: the
last dragon egg, stolen by an evil sorcerer who wants to exploit his
magical potential to achieve immortality.

Pursued by the armies of the Emperor, this strange couple ventures into a
journey through ancient China in which both will learn to grow up - he, from his
millenary wisdom and she, from her youthful inexperience - and to trust the other to
defeat the fearsome necromancer, and to ensure the survival of the lineage of the
dragons.
