The path of true love never did run smooth—especially when the sweethearts' fathers have dug a ditch right through their village, dividing it in half. That's what happens to Histrionix and the beautiful Melodrama, son and daughter of two rival chieftains. So, the star-crossed lovers call in Asterix, Obelix, and Getafix to sort out the political wrangling. However, the traitor Codex, who wants Melodrama for his very own, is out to sabotage their efforts at peacemaking. Can the trusty trio persuade the village to reunite against the threat of the legionnaires? Maybe a little magic will help . . .
