Synopsis

The adventure begins when Kern, a misfit adolescent who escapes into a world of comic book heroes, is challenged to become a hero himself. The 14-year-old is one of the last believers in truth and justice in the demolished inner city of Los Angeles. Kern and his best friend, Mouse, are avid comic book readers whose favorite fictional hero is “Veritas, Prince of Truth”. Unfortunately, the lack of readership is causing the demise of the comic book. Cancellation of the magazine however cannot go unchallenged by Veritas who decides to prevent his main adversary, Nemisii, from destroying his comic book world by “entering” the real world. He selects Kern to guide and assist him on his quest. Mouse and Kern find ways to help Veritas adjust to the real world in his search for the “Bio code” needed to rescue his planet. Marty, Kern’s mother, soon discovers that plot and is reluctant to believe the outrageous story. Veritas, however, convinces her of his honesty and plight and the four of them set out on a quest to save Veritas’ world and find truth for themselves along the way.

Dove Review

This is a pure fantasy adventure about one young boy’s belief in comic book heroes and the truth of the world. Anything is possible when you have your imagination. Kern’s hero, Veritas, comes to life and knows when people lie because his eyes light up. Now as the ‘real’ world and the comic book world come together the real truth must come out for both worlds to survive. There are many discoveries made by the group as they venture into the battle between good and evil.

This is a world of comic book type adventure that will be enjoyed by the entire family. Due to some content Dove awards this DVD the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12 and over.
