Overview

This family-oriented fairy tale was shot on-location in Romania and is set in medieval times. There teenage Prince Davin and his father engage in a playful joust that unfortunately results in injury for the King who eventually dies, not because of the joust but because his devious head knight El El has been slowly poisoning him. As soon as the king dies, El El claims the crown until poor guilt wracked Davin comes of age. Under El El's ruthless reign, the poor peasants fall into a grim oppressed life. To make it worse, the villainous king claims he is acting under the orders of Davin. Eventually Davin figures out El El's treachery and confronts him. El El decides Davin must die and so the boy flees with only his father's perplexing last words to guide him. Just before he expired, the King whispered of a statuette of the mythical Galgameth, a giant metal-munching dragon that will faithfully serve the one who sheds tears upon the statue. Though big and clunky looking, Galgameth has a certain homely charm that will appeal to children. With the giant monster's help, good Prince Davin is able to ensure a happy ending for his kingdom.
