The film revolves around Edgin David (Chris Pine), a skilled thief who embarks on a quest to obtain a resurrection tablet in order to bring back his deceased wife. Alongside his loyal friend Holga (Michelle Rodriguez), Edgin successfully retrieves the tablet but is subsequently captured by Sofina (Daisy Head), a formidable Red Wizard. Meanwhile, Edgin’s comrade Forge (Hugh Grant) takes on the responsibility of caring for his daughter Kira (Chloe Coleman).
