Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction- the Horcruxes. On their own without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must rely on each other more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the Wizarding World has become a dangerous place for anyone that opposes the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters have infiltrated the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort...alive. Harry's only hope is to find the horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale- the legend of the Deathly Hallows. If the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
