The legend of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, Evangeline, is transformed into a modern-era love story that transcends time.
Set in 1955, both in New York City's hectic advertising world, and in the bucolic Louisiana Bayou, EVANGELINE, A CURIOUS JOURNEY tells the story of successful filmmaker Clay Arceneaux who, despite his accomplishments, feels restless and journeys to his native Louisiana in search of his true identity. Clay's journey to St. Martinville Parish in the Bayou introduces him to the fascinating legend of Evangeline and her lifelong search for her beloved Gabriel - as well as to a newfound love in the young postulant Emmaline. Soon Clay discovers why he feels the mysterious call to the Bayou so intensely.
