Danny Glover plays William Ward, a man dangerously close to giving up after losing the love of his life. From her deathbed, William recounts his history with Venus, the Native American beauty descended from the mystical Lightning Clan, and all of their challenges and triumphs. William’s current state of mind is becoming of great concern to his son, whose present path is strikingly similar to that of his father‘s. Beautiful visuals and a poignant score highlight this emotionally charged story. Their journey culminates with the two men witnessing a miraculous event that proves love’s eternal connection.
