Colossal adventure odyssey that turns the hands of time back to the very beginning of man's existence. Against the perilous atmosphere of rugged torrain, rival tribes, and savage beasts, the vital quest ensued for the crucial flame and the knowledge to create it.

This spectucular production also takes time to focus on human drama as the primitive people experience their first feelings of compassion and caring for others
