Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They lost the wizard Gandalf in a battle in the Mines of Moria, and Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape, the rest of the company was attacked by Orcs.
Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin - alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
Frodo must carry the One Ring through the ghostly borders of Mordor, Land of the Enemy, and back to the Fire that can destroy its evil powers, in the second volume in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. (A New Line Cinema film, the second in three feature films based on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, starring Viggo Mortenson, Hugo Weaving, Liv Tyler, Orlando Bloom, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, & Ian Holm)

"I'd cut off your head, dwarf, if it stood but a little higher from the ground." -Eomer
Various reproachful names for himself came to Sam's mind, drawn from the Gaffer's (father) large parental word-hoard.
SummaryAdd a Summary
In the second part of Lord of the Rings, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas arrive at Rohan in the midst of their search for missing Merry and Pippin and meet an old friend. Meanwhile, the two hobbits find themselves kidnapped by the Uruk-hai to be taken to Saruman, but escape into the feared Fangorn Forest, where they meet an unlikely friend. Frodo and Sam continue their quest to destroy the Ring, but meeting an enemy along the way (who proves quite helpful) may not have been a chance.
