"Beowulf" is the story of the Danes and their rescuer Beowulf, from the land of the Geats.  The story starts at Herot, the mead-hall of king Hrothgar.  The Danes are helpless when Herot is attacked by a ferocious monster named Grendel.
Beowulf, a well known hero, comes to rescue them.  He fights Grendel bare-handed, Grendel's mother, and a dragon that seals his fate.  Beowulf shows true Heroism in fighting for a people that are not his own.
