A Journey with umpteen twists in the story..., 15 May 2000
Author: kron-2

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.
