Shrek is a repugnant, green-skinned, fire-breathing, seemingly indestructible monster who enjoys causing misery with his repulsiveness. After his parents decide that he must see the world, they kick him out of their swamp. Shrek soon encounters a witch, who, in exchange for his rare lice, reads his fortune: using the magic words "Apple Strudel", he will be taken by donkey to a castle, where he will battle a knight and marry a princess who is even uglier than him.
