Synopsis

Four gifted college students' fantasy game -- a complex, theoretical war strategy played against a medieval background allowing each to assume other identities, plunge into various adventures, and keep from getting killed -- takes an ominous turn. A quartet of young, fairly-new-to-television actors take the leads in this Canadian-made film, with a number of veteran performers as their parents. The first TV-movie based on one of Rona Jaffe's novels, the best-known of which was "The Best of Everything", it is a dramatization of the author's chronicle that was inspired by newspaper accounts of a teenager's 1979 disappearance while playing the popular fantasy game, "Dungeons and Dragons."
