What is a friend? Troth without end.
A light in the eyes, a touch of the hand –

A medieval Celtic kingdom – which is normally isolated and has to fear only occasional revolts by one of the vassals – now has to face a bigger threat than ever before. The king is lying on his deathbed, his sickness caused by a mysterious and certainly magical ring, with no hope for rescue. The only chance to save his life seems to be a young man, seemingly not out of this world. The Oddling Prince tells the story of two young men from different worlds with a friendship that defies everything else.

A heavily laden ship with flimsy lifeboats and panicked passengers in heavy waters – the perfect foundation for a heart wrenching drama to unfold. Big Water is a fictional portrayal of the real-life story of the only two survivors of the sinking of the SS Asia in 1882.
