Nature awakens to new life, and Lukas is happy, for his mother is about to give birth to her second child, and Lukas' grandfather, Brunneck, is coming from Canada for the event.

When Otto kills the man in a rage, Lukas tries to flee, but is caught by the murderer. Otto ... Written by Anonymous

A Journey with umpteen twists in the story...
15 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Nice story. The story has many twists and turns. Set in the mid 19th century it gives an insight to 19th century Prussia. Watch Zachary & Gema travel across continents. The movie features Prussian - European 19th century living, Post American Civil War, wild Canadian prairies, American Indians, and so much more. It has great background scenes.

A movie perfect for a summer afternoon.
