Description: "Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts – for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders… The gallant Asterix and Obelix, together with their trusty friend Dogmatix, volunteer to go fishing, as there will be no magic potion without fresh fish. Landing after a violent storm, they discover some strange Romans who are reluctant to let our heroes leave."
