Ed and Al head to Dublith in order to see their former teacher, and Winry decides to tag along so she can visit Rush Valley on the way. Meanwhile, Lt. Colonel Hughes discovers some sensitive information and finds himself facing off against the Homunculus.
Edward and Alphonse Elric's reckless disregard for alchemy's funandshy;damental laws ripped half of Ed's limbs from his body and left Al's soul clinging to a cold suit of armor. To restore what was lost, the brothers scour a war-torn land for the Philosopher's Stoandshy;ne, a fabled relic which grants the ability to perform alchemy in impossible ways.
The Elrics are not alone in their search; the corrupt State Military is also eager to harness the artifact's power. So too are the strange Homunculi and their shadowy creator. The mythical gem lures exotic alchemists from distant kingdoms, scarring some deeply enough to inspire hug. As the Elrics find their course altered by these enemies and allies, their purpose remains unchanged - and their bond unbreakable.
