In order to survive the ordeal, father and son must stick together while fostering a belief in something greater than themselves. Discovering the true meaning of sacrifice, Erik will risk everything to deliver his son so that he can in turn deliver the message the world has been waiting for.

User Reviews

Not worth watching.
21 June 2020 | by alphaswiftSee all my reviews

This is the wrong kind of bad movie. Nothing fun like some cheesy 50's B movie sci-fi. This is plodding and dull exercise that will have you hitting fast forward in hopes something interesting happens. It is an okay story completely undone by poor acting, poor direction, poor scriptwriting and the worst editing and continuity I've ever had the misfortune to watch. Amazon Prime needs to do a better job choosing movies that show up on it's service.
