Plot Summary: An adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin’s novel “A Wizard of Earthsea,” the first book of the award-winning Earthsea cycle which includes “The Tombs of Atuan,” “The Farthest Shore” and “Tehanu”.
“Wizard of Earthsea” centers on Ged, who was the greatest sorcerer in all Earthsea. He was once called Sparrowhawk, a reckless youth, hungry for power and knowledge, who tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world.
It’s the tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death’s threshold to restore the balance.
