New York 2095. The gods of ancient Egypt have sentenced Horus of Hierakonopolis to death. His last wish is to see once again planet Earth, a world he helped to create. He arrives in Manhattan in a giant pyramid-shaped vessel that floats majestically above the city. But Horus has a hidden agenda. He must find a very unique girl with blue hair and tears who has the power to make him immortal. He has seven days to do so…

Film adaptation of director Bilal's own 1980 graphic novel "The Carnival of Immortals" ("La Foire aux Immortels") uses an incredible amount of computer CGI mixed with live action. Many plot elements were changed from the comic book.
