Plot Synopsis

Based on the books by Terry Pratchett. Discworld, a magical realm, has got its first tourist! Rincewind, an incompetent and cynical wizardry student, has recently been expelled from Unseen University and been given the task of guiding Twoflower through the city state of Ankh Morpork. The two are forced to flee the city after a terrible fire and are sent on a fantastical journey across the Disc, which is unknowingly being controlled by a board game played by the Gods. Along the way Rincewind encounters a few problems: firstly, as an expert coward, he doesn't feel he's the best person to guard a naive - and extremely rich, tourist through one of the roughest cities in the land and then they experience a vicious and bloody struggle with his archenemy, the power-hungry maniac Trymon who Rincewind must defeat in order to save Discworld from ultimate destruction.
