The show is set in a medieval fantasy world full of benders, those who can manipulate one of the elements: earth, air, fire, and water. The Avatar, a reincarnated being with a mastery of all four elements, maintains peace and balance in the world. But the latest reincarnation, the young airbender named Aang, emerges at a time when Fire Lord Ozai used his armies to wipe out the Air Nomads and is deep into a campaign for world domination. Now Aang, with the help of his friends, must set out to master all the elements and become strong enough to restore balance.
