In the prehistoric world, a Cro-Magnon tribe depends on an ever-burning source of fire, which eventually extinguishes. Lacking the knowledge to start a new fire, the tribe sends three warriors (Everett McGill, Ron Perlman, Nameer El-Kadi) on a quest for more. With the tribe’s future at stake, the warriors make their way across a treacherous landscape full of hostile tribes and monstrous beasts. On their journey, they encounter Ika (Rae Dawn Chong), a woman who has the knowledge they seek.

Black Lodge, a collective of musicians led by guitarist/composer Geoff Gersh, is dedicated to the art of re-scoring and live performance to silent and non-silent films. For this performance they will be presented as a guitar trio, creating ambient soundscapes and slowly developing metal riffs…  just like the cavemen used to do.
