A reckless youth is destined to become the greatest sorcerer that the mystical land of Earthsea has ever known. When the young wizard Ged discovers that he possesses infinite magical powers, he seeks to master the ancient arts. As he journeys to manhood, he will combat dragons, fall in love, cross death's threshold, and ultimately wield the power to reunite a kingdom.
In the tomb of Atuan, Tenar is dreaming about a young man in trouble. Ged decides it's time to stand up to Gebbeth, and fight him. And the only salvation lies in bringing two parts of the amulet back together.
Impulsive and rebellious Ged is always near trouble - and that's why his Master sends him to Wizard school to learn about his strengths, as well as weaknesses. But one day, in a state of anger, Ged invokes the Nameless One and sets in motion his true journey.
