Synopsis: This wonderful story happened in the age of valiant knights, beautiful princesses, and battling sorcerers. Ruslan, a wandering artist dreaming of knighthood, met beautiful Mila and fell in love with her; he didn’t even suspect that she is the King’s daughter. However, the lovers’ happiness wasn’t meant to last too long. Chernomor, the evil sorcerer, appeared in a magic vortex and stole Mila right before Ruslan’s eyes to capture the power of her love for his own magic. Without further ado, Ruslan chases after the stolen princess, determined to overcome all obstacles and to prove that real love is stronger than magic.
