AGE OF THE DRAGONS is an adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick and is set in a medieval realm where Captain Ahab (Danny Glover) and his crew hunt dragons for the vitriol that powers their world. Ishmael (Corey Sevier), is a charismatic harpooner and his friend Queequeg (John Kepa Kruse) join their quest. Ahab’s adopted daughter Rachel (Sofia Pernas), beautiful and tough, runs the hunting vessel.

Ahab’s obsession is to seek revenge on a great ‘White Dragon’ that slaughtered his family when he was young and left his body scarred and mauled, and so drives the crew deeper into the heart of darkness. In the White Dragon’s lair Ahab’s secrets and his motives are finally uncovered. As this dangerous hunt could end in death, Rachel must face the difficult task of choosing between either following Ahab on his dark quest or escaping to a new life with Ishmael.
