Sarah Beauhall has more on her plate than most twenty something's: day job as a blacksmith, night job as a props manager for low-budget movies, and her free time is spent fighting in a medieval re-enactment group. After the lead actor breaks Sarah's favourite, one-of-a-kind sword, one of the extras, who claims to be a dwarf, offers to help repair the blade. And that's when things start to get weird. Could the sword really be magic, as the 'dwarf' claims? Are dragons really living among us as shape shifters? As if things weren't surreal enough, Sarah's girlfriend Katie breaks out the dreaded phrase...'I love you'. Her life falls apart; Sarah hits rock bottom. At this moment, when she has lost everything she once prized, one of the dragons makes a move. Sarah will have to decide if she can reject what is safe and become the heroine who is needed to save her world.
