"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a motion picture event, told in two full-length parts.
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous
mission to track down and destroy the Horcruxes--the keys to
Voldemort's immortality. On their own, without the guidance or
protection of their professors, the three friends must now rely on one
another 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 all
enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's
Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts,
terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one
prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry
Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as Voldemort's
followers look for Harry with orders to bring him to the Dark Lord...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. And if the legend turns out to
be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his
past when, on that fateful day, he became "the Boy Who Lived." No
longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for
which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into
Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
