Fenian (James Liu) is exiled from his small village for revealing his dreams that the plague will return after two centuries. He sets out to search for the mythical island of Avalon in this 15th-century adventure saga full of breathtaking scenery. Director John J. Anderson, a protégé of Ansel Adams, shows he was greatly influenced by the work of Werner Herzog. Spectacular photography from the British Isles, British Columbia, and Washington and Oregon in the Northwestern United States is the highlight of the film. Anderson's excellence in using natural light shows he has learned well from his mentor.
