  • Synopsis

In this action-packed animated feature set in the retro-futuristic world of Esluna, a relic hunter and her crew must track down an ancient artifact known as the Crown of Babylon. After her mentor is abducted, young Maeve sets out on an epic journey filled with peril and pitfalls. She and her team are in a race against nefarious characters also seeking the crown that legend says has the power to bring back the dead for those who possess it.

In a rare and admirable creative achievement for his first feature film, director Denver Jackson drew and animated the entire film independently, blending visual styles seamlessly with homage to the Japanese master Hayao Miyazaki.

This self-taught filmmaker developed his own technique of applying hand-drawn two-dimensional images over 3D backgrounds which result in action sequences that pop off the screen in this thrilling adventure that will appeal to audiences of all ages. — Alex Rogalski
