The evil wizard, Agahnim, is kidnapping young women who are the descendants of the great sages who once sealed away a great evil in the Golden Land.

They set off into the night to rescue her... but Link's uncle falls in combat leaving the young hero alone to take up the sword and shield to protect the princess and defeat the madman behind it all.
