Film details


Evil Queen Bavmorda orders that every baby in the land should be slaughtered to prevent baby princess Elora Daran from ascending to the throne. A sympathetic midwife manages to save the princess by casting her downstream to the peaceful Nelwyn settlement, Willow's home. She is found by his children and he and his family take care of her. However, her presence brings danger to the settlement and the other villagers reject her because she is not of their race.
