After leaving the safety of her forest, the last unicorn is captured and held in captivity by an evil witch who wishes to use this magical creature as a show for her carnival. Fortunately the unicorn meets Smendrick; a somewhat incompetent magician who desperately wants to be able to perform real magic.
