Ludwig must come to terms with the harsh responsibilities that await him as future ruler and the visions of peace and beauty, which churn deep inside his heart. Accompanied by his favorite cousin and soulmate, the Empress Elisabeth (known as “Sisi”) he encounters a powerful secret, hidden at a legendary, mystical lake. An enchanted swan is awakened and presents him a sword from ancient times with the power to awaken the dreams of all mankind. Ludwig embraces his destiny, faces his father and builds his Castle Neuschwanstein – where he will guard the forgotten dreams of the people until they return to the lake and the mountains… to remember.
