Three witches, a murdered king, a fool in love, a deranged duke with his ambitious wife, a group of actors and a baby … This can add up to only one thing: trouble! While trying to form a coven the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick stumble upon an ugly truth that may decide the future of the whole kingdom of Lancre. Despite Granny’s resolution not to meddle in politics, the witches defy the unpopular Duke Felmet and cause havoc wherever they go. And they’ve got a few powerful tricks up their sleeves. Meanwhile the Duke and Duchess come up with a vicious plan to fight the witches with the help of a theatrical propaganda-program. Furthermore a budding romance develops between Magrat and the Duke’s Fool leading the poor fellow into a dilemma: Should he follow his master’s orders or should he follow his heart? Well, rules are meant to be broken or as Nanny Ogg points out, “When you break rules, break’em good and hard”.
