On the seventh day the king gave me a golden medal, bearing on one side the words ART IS THE PRIESTESS OF NATURE and on the other NATURE IS THE DAUGHTER OF TIME.
The premise was interesting though a bit convoluted.
The acting and directing were acceptable.
The one thing that ruined this film for me was the sound editing. Perhaps it was the copy I watched.
