The film was originally intended as a conceptual piece entitled "Q", and began production in 1979 before Terrence Malick
abandoned the project. It was conceived as a multi-character love story set in the Middle East during the First World War which begins with a prologue set in prehistoric times. Eventually, Malick removed the WWI narrative and the prehistoric prologue became the whole film, with the narrative becoming more metaphorical and involving a prehistoric Minotaur or a "sleeping god" resting in the depths of the water while dreaming about the origins and formation of the universe.
