Synopsis

In contemporary Moscow, a 1000-year-old truce upholds between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness. For centuries, the undercover members of the Night Watch have policed the world's Dark Ones--the vampires, witches, shape-shifters and sorcerers that wage treachery in the night--while the Dark Ones have a Day Watch that in turn polices the forces of Light. The fate of humanity rests in this delicate balance between good and evil but that fate is in jeopardy. Ancient prophecy foretells that one day a "Great One" will arrive who can end the apocalyptic battle between Light and Dark conclusively. That time has arrived in Moscow--but which side will the Great One choose?
