Synopsis by Mark Deming
A boy uses his magical powers to save both his family and the world as we know it in this family-oriented fantasy adventure. Teenager Alex Brown (Paul Nolan) is the son of a pair of former secret agents. When his parents are kidnapped and taken to Romania by political extremists planning to take over the world by laying claim to vast reserves of plutonium, Alex must step in to save them. Fortunately, Alex has an ace up his sleeve -- with the help of an ancient magician, Alex has learned the art of shapeshifting, allowing him to assume whatever form he needs. Shapeshifter also stars Bill MacDonald, Emmanuelle Vaugier, and Catherine Blythe.
