Lilith forms an alliance having an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, desperate for redemption now; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, challenged protector rhetorically; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a wiseass robot persistently. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to get and protect the missing girl, who may contain the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could possibly be within their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: one another.
