Based on James C. Christensen's novel Voyage of the Bassett, this two-part TV movie stars Beau Bridges as recently widowed mythology professor Alan Aisling. Subscribing to the theory credendo vides (by believing, one sees), Prof. Aisling finds this philosophy put to the test when his home is invaded by malevolent trolls, determined to prevent him from fulfilling "the prophecy." Managing to escape, Alan and his older daughter, Miranda (Heather McEwen), embark upon a journey from the Sensible World to the Land of Imagination on board the magical ship "The Unicorn." Meanwhile, Alan's younger daughter, Cassie (Chantal Conlin), heads off on an adventure of her own, eventually reconnecting with her family on Faerie Isle -- where it is written that a wise man and two gentle maidens are destined to release the population from the powers of darkness. Voyage of the Unicorn made its American TV debut over the Odyssey cable network beginning March 2, 2001.
