Watership Down

Based on Richard Adams' best-selling novel, this dark tale begins with the little rabbit, Fiver, having a vision about the destruction of their warren (collection of rabbit burrows). He tries to warn the other rabbits, but in the end only his brother, Hazel, and a few others follow him away from their old home. Lead by Fiver's visions of a safe place and guided by Hazel's common-sense wisdom, the group ventures into the frightening world of dogs, foxes, men and dangers found in only their worst nightmares.
