1-PAGE SYNOPSIS

3-PAGE TREATMENT

During the “Warring Kingdoms” period in ancient China, seven kingdoms are battling for control of Asia, and the King of Chu on the eastern coastline is desperate to protect his people from neighboring enemies. Wealth is needed to finance the Emperor’s military defense, and there are reports that such wealth can be found in a magical land known as “Fu Sang.” So the Emperor launches three hundred ships that are divided into three expeditions.


Today, the historical texts of this coastal kingdom refer to these voyagers collectively as the “Eyes of the Dragon,” and each expedition was given a different objective:


The first expedition, using maps and texts from previous scouting expeditions, is to forge lucrative business alliances with existing empires in the Americas, and to carry that wealth back to China.


The second expedition is an armed fleet that must police the Emperor’s overseas colonies and control the pirates that are victimizing his merchant and treasure ships.


The third expedition leaves port with the second expedition as part of the policing force, but in fact has a secret mission known only to its admiral, the legendary CHANG HO, who has already commanded two successful voyages in his Emperor’s behalf.


This movie series focuses primarily on the voyages of Admiral Chang Ho and his fleet of one hundred ships as they search the ancient Americas for the elusive “Child of Heaven” – an ancient alien whose spirit has the ability to leap from one human to another. Until its recent “defection” or “abduction” -– no one knows for certain – this magical spirit had served as a source of wisdom and supernatural power for the king and his illustrious ancestors.


In their search for this spiritual god-on-Earth, our voyagers are led by various clues to faraway lands, where they encounter a variety of civilizations and supernatural monsters.


Occasionally, they will aid or confront fellow countrymen who are sailing the world’s oceans on different missions, some of whom are engaged in benevolent activity toward others, and some who are committing horrible acts against Man and Nature.


At the end of every journey, Admiral Chang Ho and his voyagers come so close to capturing the elusive “Child of Heaven,” but somehow it always manages to escape, which begins the game of cat-and-mouse all over again.


But through the mere act of pursuing the spiritual, Admiral Chang Ho and his men are always left to understand that their Savior has many faces, all of which are reflected by the diverse and fascinating nature of every plant and animal life form that the “Child of Heaven” has led them to, in that magical place that is today known to the modern world as the Americas.

OBJECTIVES:  As with all of our projects, our goal is to: 

- EDUCATE: 

- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are. 

- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."

 

- INSPIRE:  We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things.  Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.

 

- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER:  We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams.  Nothing is promised or guaranteed.  Nothing is free.  One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.

 

- CALL TO ADVENTURE:  When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.
