Enter Adelene (AMY JOHNSTON), a street smart young woman who has come to live life relying only on herself. She begins to have visions of a life she knows nothing about. They worsen. One night, the vision is of an older man. He tells her he’s her deceased father, until recently the head of the Lion Clan. She was given up at birth for her safety, given sanctuary from brutal reality by being kept in the dark, living in the haze of a normal day-to-day existence. Now, he tells her, that sanctuary is no more.
The visions now overtake Adelene. In a completely confused state, she’s flung from this reality to the one she wasn’t meant to know. Two mysterious clansmen break into her home and kidnap her.
Adelene awakens at the Lion Clan compound. She’s told who she is and asked to take the mantle of clan leader. Little does she know that the role she’s about to take on is that of a battlefield general, one who’s given rank only as the enemy is advancing.
What follows is her discovery of the real powers of the world, including her family’s role in an ancient struggle. Her family and the Lion Clan have used their spirit abilities and energy to wield power. Among them a principal player named Baruti (BRENDON HUOR) bonds with Adelene, forming an alliance with the Lion Clan against his family’s wishes..
