Ayla walked with the Cave Bear. She had spoken out for Creb because she loved him. The sign had finally come. She understood the vision. Durc was of the Clan, and one day he would be their leader. She must find her own people. She must walk alone. Everything she had lived through had prepared her for this journey - and she was not afraid. For the first time Ayla felt the strength of her own spirit.

If you liked Quest for Fire, you should enjoy this fictional visit to the origin's of civilization. I always loved the film's poster and my wife loved the book(s) but we missed the movie when it was in the theaters, partly because it wasn't receiving good reviews. When we rented this, we expected a turkey (we love to study bad film) but were pleasantly surprised.
Simply said, this made a good "Sunday Morning" film to wake up to with a hot cup of java. I was a little disappointed that the look Daryl Hanna sports in the film's poster never fully comes to fruition in the movie (it got close in one scene) but none the less it was fun.
