Bilbo Baggins has lived a long and adventurous life. In his youth, he spent a lot of time wandering around the world, participated in the struggle for power among the dwarfs and received a magic ring, which became a stumbling block for all his further accomplishments. Now he is a simple old man who entertains the surrounding children with a trick of disappearing and is preparing to celebrate his 111 birthday. Good mage Gandolph Gray is announced for the holiday to his old friend. He declares from the threshold that a decisive battle is coming, the outcome of which will forever change the order existing in Middle-earth. In order for the forces of good to win, it is necessary to destroy the cherished ring, which is necessary for the dark lord in this confrontation. If the jewel is in the hands of Sauron, the chances are no longer there.
Bilbo reluctantly passes the decoration on to his nephew, the young hobbit Frodo. He takes an oath that will take him to the mountain of fire, where he will be thrown into boiling lava. Only in this way can one destroy the absolute power ring. Together with three buddies, the nedorlik sets off on a journey that lasts for months. In his footsteps a detachment of ghostly horsemen, sent by an evil sorcerer, is already moving.
