The story begins in a fictitious location called the middle earth. Bilbo Baggins wishes to retire and on his 111th birthday he gives away everything including a ring which he found during his travel to his nephew Frodo Baggins. Soon Frodo realizes the ring has become a burden for him. The wizard Gandalf discovers that the ring was forged by the dark lord Sauron and it has his evil powers.

Sauron has risen to his powers again in his stronghold in Mordor. Sauron has plans to rule the middle earth. However, he lacks the ring which will help him accomplish his plans. The dark lord, Sauron becomes desperate to find the ring and he sends cursed black riders to find the ring in the shire from Baggins. Gandalf returns back, to tell the truth of the ring to Frodo. He shares the power of the ring with Frodo and how it can influence the bearer and those near him if it is worn for long.
