This summer a star falls. The chase begins.
Based on the popular graphic novel, this teenage fantasy epic is set in an imaginary England. A young couple sees a shooting star fall in a forbidden area. He agrees to retrieve it, for her hand in marriage. After entering the forbidden area, he discovers that the star has turned into a young woman. While he tries to persuade her to return with him, to satisfy his girlfriend, there are others who want the fallen star. These include a witch seeking eternal life, and several princes desperate to ascend the throne. Meanwhile, in true boy-meets-girl fashion, things develop between the star and her would-be rescuer...
