The story is about Cassandra Pentaghast who investigates a conspiracy in the Chantry. Orlais is visited, in addition to new locations.
In the land of Orlais, a brash young Seeker—Cassandra—fights to stop a blood-soaked conspiracy. Hidden hands seek to tear apart the realm's most powerful religious order, and as the sinister plot unfolds, Cassandra is accused of treason and murder. Hunted by friend and foe alike, the impulsive beauty must clear her name while clashing with corrupt templars and rogue blood mages. Should she fail, the executioner’s blade awaits. Should she overcome her rage and expose the unseen forces threatening the rule of the Divine, Cassandra will take her place in legend.
The film follows the past of Cassandra Pentaghast, a Nevarran royal who embarks on a journey to unearth a conspiracy within the Chantry. One evening, Cassandra witnesses Byron taking a girl out of prison. When asked why, he tells her that the girl holds the key to a conspiracy, but are suddenly under attack by blood mages. The movie takes place in 9:22 Dragon.
