Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, it tells the story of a swashbuckling farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck.
The film preserves the novel's metafictional narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather to his sick grandson.
