Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Zach Gray helms the Gaelic-flavored, spiritually charged mystery Secret of the Cave -- one of the first major cinematic productions of Southern Adventist University. The story unfurls on the idyllic, rocky coasts of Ireland, where a young boy, Roy Wallace (Kevin Novotny), is spending the summer with his Irish dad (Patrick Bergin of Love Crimes and Sleeping with the Enemy). Soon, inexplicable, otherworldly events befall the village, and rumors swirl through its streets of strange spirits and hauntings. Initially, Roy tries to tie these events to any number of locals -- everyone from an oddball hermit to an eccentric fisherman. He also notices that each event impacts the hamlet in a beneficial way. In time, Roy traces the events to their origin -- a strange sea cave characterized by many as a source of enchantment -- and vows to unveil the grotto's mystical secrets. Joseph Kelly and Sean Murphy co-star; Gray, Scott Fogg, David George, and Aaron Adams co-adapted Arthur S. Maxwell's children's novel.
