Brunneck, however, brings only discord to the family. Though Lukas is excited by his grandfather's plans to take the family back with him to Canada, his father Karl will hear none of this. Tempers flare and Lukas' mother, deeply troubled and frightened, goes into early labor - and dies. Brunneck blames Karl, and demands to take Lukas with him. Bewildered, Lukas flees into the night. Lukas accidentally witnesses an altercation between a local nobleman, Count Otto von Lebrecht, and a gambling partner to whom he owes money.

I bought this movie because I love Road to Avonlea and many of the actors from this series are in this movie. After watching the movie however, I was left scratching my head at a few of the plot twists and turns. Turns out after reading the summary (which is a FULL summary with spoilers FYI) that there are indeed scenes missing on the DVD that were part of the original movie that were most likely cut to fit on the DVD.

Plot twists that weren't intended aside, this is a good movie that spans a few continents and has something for the whole family to enjoy. Although there are death scenes in this movie, they are done delicately enough for the younger audience to still be able to watch. From Prussia, to the sea, to the wilderness to the prarie: this movie has every landscape one could want and a nice story to intermix all of them.


Nice story. The story has many twists and turns. Set in the mid 19th century it gives an insight to 19th century Prussia. Watch Zachary & Gema travel across continents. The movie features Prussian - European 19th century living, Post American Civil War, wild Canadian prairies, American Indians, and so much more. It has great background scenes.

A movie perfect for a summer afternoon.
