The King is being manipulated by an evil sorcerer who is bent on using a natural resource of Atlantis to take over the world. The Atlanteans, or rather the slaves of Atlantis, are forced to mine a crystalline material which absorbs the suns rays. These crystals can then be used for warmth.

When Columbus discovered America,

a series of mysteries emerged in Europe.

Here, there are two continents,

isolated from each other.

Nevertheless, developed a similar culture.

For example:

The Mayan calendar has

same principle as the Gregorian.

They use the same signs of the zodiac.

The same decimal system.

They value the silver and gold.

Use both for jewelry and ornaments.

Another mystery is the banana plantation.

Native to Asia and not

can grow from seeds.

Still, Columbus found

plantations in the New World.

Elephants that time,

did not exist in the Americas.

And yet there are drawings on

prehistoric caves in Peru.

The pyramids of Mexico and

Egypt, were built...

...with the same principle architectural.

Another example. Are

the witches of Spain...

...and the witches of the New World.

But the most significant all...

Mayan and Aztec legends are

same as the Greek and Hebrew...

...and have terrible catastrophes.

Unbelievable disaster

that destroyed the link.

The empire mother...

...civilization that has spread

on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Greek historian Plato

enunciated this theory,

more than two thousand years.

Once, another continent.

'ATLANTIS' 'The Lost Continent'.

Got one.

Look dad, there.

Damn.

What?

Come back.

Demitrius, come back.

Osiris is a trick.

Beware. Do not touch it.

By the trident of Neptune.

A mermaid.

The canteen.

Who are you?

Who can she be?

She is not one of our people.

I do not know, but what will

say by picking one of these fish?

Father.

Where is this miserable place and

what I'm doing between slaves?

You're in Greece and this is our home.

The shirt is mine.

You clothed me?

Somebody had to do.

Where are my clothes?

This cotton, scratch my skin.

Were wet, I put them to dry.

Our food is simple, come.

Sit down with us and Tell us your story.

Their food is not me try it one bit.

As you wish, my little mermaid.

I'm not your little mermaid.

I'm a princess.

Princess?

Antilia Princess, daughter King Kronos.

And where is this his kingdom,

princess?

In the great sea behind

the pillars of Hercules.

Pillars of Hercules?

There is nothing beyond.

The world ends there.

You doubt my word, a fisherman?

Have you been well?

If it had come, no 'd be here.

Do not touch me.

You smell like fish.

But of course...

We are fishermen.

Now listen.

And listen up, princess.

In our land, not we the kings...

We do not have daughters of kings,

nor slaves.

We are all free men.

We treat everyone as would like to treat us.

My son and I, we rescued the sea.

And we brought her to safety.

We share our humble hut.

And we have only received insults

in return.

If our home is miserable,

our clothes and the hurt,

Our food did not feel like Princess Royal,

then browse your

accommodations with someone else.

Can you help me now.

You can help yourself alone.

Come, Demetrius.

There are fish to be caught.

Good afternoon, Petros.

You're right, Antlia?

Of course, why?

His face is pale you look sick.

Where is Demetrius?

Putting the network to dry.

I'll help you.

She's sick.

Demetrius...

The way I'm not I have nothing to hide.

You give me my robe or

climb aboard the way I am.

Oh, you...

Beyond the Sunset Atlantis is my home.

A land of wonders beyond comprehension.

Take me there, Demetrius.

My father no longer rich.

Antilia, other riches want, you already have.

I know of one.

Cause you'll never own fisherman.

Antilia.

Antilia.

Keep aside.

Sit.

You must be crazy. There

one law for those who steal a boat.

I'll go home and nobody will catch me.

Many men have tried.

Many good sailors

sailed toward the sunset.

But no one returned to tell. None.

Are you scared?

Yes.

And also cautious. There

many dangers beyond the pillars.

I'd rather die than risk the

to stay in his village one day.

I'll forget this foolishness.

I'll take it back.

Okay, take me back.

There are other men, courageous,

to beg for help.

Put me ashore, for I

choose my travel companion.

Listen, Antilia.

I'll take it,

but only on my terms.

If at the time of a moon,

I do not find your land...

We will return to My land...

But that's not all.

When we return...

You become my beautiful wife, forever.

Whatever you say, Demetrius.

Antilia.

I can not take it anymore go

to the west, we go south.

We need to find the path of the whales.

No need.

This will guide us.

He always points north.

My father would call it,

witchcraft.

This is not witchcraft is science.

Demetrius.

It's time to eat.

No food.

Just a little wine.

It was just a fish.

Let me fill it.

These waters are cursed,

we shall return.

I do not believe that my

Captain forgotten bargain.

Not the bargain and not

are the dolphins, is something else.

The fog... silence when there is no wind.

Everything seems to whisper for me...

Returns.

Return, or never be a man of the sea.

Listen to your mind, Demetrius.

She whispers.

But there is a curse.

Tonight will be a full moon

and we did not see nothing but sea.

Are you still in its promise?

I keep it.

Let's go back then?

Not yet.

I bargain for a little more...

...neither more nor less.

Demetrius.

Yes?

The world over, beyond Pillars of Hercules?

No.

And you find monsters in each place?

Well..

Well?

Well, I saw King Neptune.

But you do not actually saw.

Maybe not.

So I have your trust?
