The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely. One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. Among these resolute Gauls are our two heroes: ASTERIX AND OBELIX. One day, when Asterix and Obelix are out hunting, Caesar's troops take advantage of their absence and capture the other villagers. Even worse, the invaders also seize the druid, Getafix, along with the magic strength potion he was brewing. Caesar has left nothing to chance.
