The first feature animation from Kilkenny’s Cartoon Saloon which combined their unique style with Irish myth, legend and music.

Watching the monks work on the legendary Book of Kells he finds himself on a secret quest that will take him for the first time ever beyond the abbey’s walls into the enchanted forest where dangerous mythical creatures hide. With the terrifying Viking hordes closing in, will Brendan succeed in saving the sacred book and the monastery?
