An allegorical expression of history’s central event! This coming-of-age adventure is soaked in Inklingesque tones of fantasy and rubbed dry with the abrasive towel of reality. Evil armies hell-bent on destruction, youthful super powered self exploration, ill-practiced tradition, and time rise up to challenge a good intentioned yet misguided New Yorker and a young Lumen knight at war.
