Maquia looks to be a mere teenager but is a century or ore old. Her people have a gift and have become immortal. When a evil king invades hoping for the secret to their long life and to kidnap the women for his own purposes, Maquia is cast out into the world. Finding a small child she takes it in a raises it as her own watching hi grow old while she remains young.

I'm not going to lie, I got misty toward the run up to the end credits. I'm sorry the final sequences in the film worked for me and I teared up...

...that said I'm not sure about the rest. While I will say that after the invasion the film picks up, I'm still not sure that it all really worked for me. While there is nothing really wrong with the story, this mediation on the life of an immortal isn't wholly new. We've been here before, just not taken it from the perspective of a mother...

...then again the film made me misty at the end, so take that for what you will.

MAQUIA has has it's one Fantasia screening. It hits theaters on July 20th across North America
