Synopsis

Sights Never Before Seen—Adventure Never Before Experienced!

A Greek fisherman, Demetrio, meets a princess from Atlantis and takes her back to her home, the mythical lost city of Atlantis. There he is taken prisoner and is involved in a plot of treachery led by the corrupt royal sorcerer who uses a natural resource of Atlantis with the intention of seizing the world. The citizens of Atlantis, who happen to be slaves, are forced to work in the mines of a crystalline material that absorbs sunlight. These crystals could have a miraculous use, but in the hands of the malicious sorcerer they have given rise to deadly weapons that shoot heat rays and destroy everything they touch.
