Failed wizard Rincewind (Bafta Winner David Jason, Hogfather) is so bad at magic he only knows one spell. And he doesn't even know what it does. This goes some way to explaining why he is expelled from the Unseen University for Wizards. Despondent, he contemplates throwing himself into the river that flows through Ankh-Morpork, the Discworld's biggest city. However, his attention is diverted by the arrival of Twoflower (Oscar Nominee Sean Astin, Lord of the Rings), the Discworld’s unreasonably optimistic first Tourist. But most of all, his attention is diverted by the tourist's Luggage which is not only full of pure gold but is also able to walk by itself.
