Proposing a daring quest to find his rumored distant relatives, he enlists the help of Sir Lionel Frost, the world's foremost investigator of myths and monsters, and Adelina Fortnight, who possesses the only known map to the group's secret destination, in an odyssey around the world to find the fabled valley of Shangri-La.

PG. Fantasy/Adventure. Directed by Chris Butler. 1h 35m.
