No warrior will ever do a darker deed. Having killed a dragon and bathed in its blood, the mighty Siegfried seems undefeatable. But during a bitter family feud, his naive and beautiful wife reveals the truth to their foes: he has one terrible weakness. So Siegfried's enemies hatch a plan. They will pretend that the feud is forgotten. They will ask him to join them on a hunt. And, taking him with them into the dark depths of a forest, they will exploit that weakness and plunge a spear deep into his heart.
