The movie focuses on Harry and his friends' sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, beginning with the knowledge that Voldemort and his army of Death Eaters are on the march. Hogwarts is safe for the time being, but the power of the dark forces can be felt even there.

There will be more deadly battles ahead. The students and teachers of Hogwarts know that it is up to them to keep the Dark Lord from winning, but can everyone be trusted?

Then there is the mysterious book of spells and potions that Harry is given. The book is full of notes by the Half Blood Prince, but who is this mysterious former student? Will the spells from the book help Harry to discover a way to destroy Voldemort and his army?

Is Snape a friend or a foe? Will Hogwarts be safe against the evil army or brought down by evil from within?

Everyone knows that this year began with grim foreshadowing... but nothing can prepare them for the death they will have to face in the end...
