Three hilarious and action-packed Irish folk and fairy tales collide in raucous laughter when a trio of wild and crazy leprechauns try to help tongue-tied shepherd Fin O'Grady learn to tell a story and win the hand of his one true love.

Assisted by the wee folk of Ireland, "Blather, Blarney and Balderdash" enact "The Hunchback of Knockgrafton," in which a simple man's gentle nature wins him an unexpected prize and a cruel counterpart learns that it's not a good idea to mess with little people.

In "The Griffin's Feather," young Aidan bravely encounters a sneezing girl, a frenzied farmer and a bombastic boatman before snatching three feathers from a hen-pecked griffin in order to cure a sleeping beauty.

In "The Bird, the Mouse and the Cricket," a courageous lass and three magical animals risk their necks to help a sour prince regain his lost laughter. At last, the shy Fin discovers that a story is a treasure that increases the more you share it.
