"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.
