Overview
A man is discovered close to death in the Himalaya Mountains by two Nepalese herders, and adopted into their family. Suffering amnesia, he is given a book that will reveal his identity. The book contains three very different stories involving the Nordic gods, psychic spies in World War Two, and a teenage boy experiencing a fantastical alternate reality during blackouts at school – all somehow piecing together and revealing the mystery of the amnesic man's identity. Embark on a new kind of journey of myth, fantasy, love and... well, peculiarity.
Description
Asgard Kingdom, 10,000 years ago... Odin is in search of a thief – Idun's apples are missing, and without them the gods are, well, no longer 'godly'. Europe, 1942... A gorgeous Russian spy, a British psychic spy wannabe, and an other-worldly mystery man must work together to find and destroy the Nazis' secret 'mind weapon' before it's too late. Australia, Present Day... A school kid with an attitude problem and a questionable attendance record, finds himself between two worlds. One moment he's getting into fights at school, the next he is in a strange world with a talking monkey, a Beserker with a much-too-healthy ego, and a strange girl that channels a Moon Demon – sorry, a Moon Djinn. ... Confused? So is Matt Damon, an amnesic man (named after the movie star), found close to death in the Himalaya Mountains by a Nepalese family. Yearning to remember his past, he is given a book that interweaves these three stories, with the promise they will all piece together to reveal his identity. Embark on a new kind of journey of myth, fantasy, love and... well, peculiarity.
