When a young rabbit named Fiver has a prophetic vision that the end of his warren is near, he persuades seven other rabbits to leave with him in search of a new home.

Upon arriving at their final destination, a hill dubbed Watership Down, the rabbits find that their journey is still far from over. Realistically drawn, this British animated film carries an emotional weight.
