Captain Magigate, a legendary inventor and recluse who is equal parts Albert Einstein and Don Quixote, confronts his own shadowy destiny when two adventurous teens disrupt the status quo of his covert lab on Isla de Tiempo Muerto. When the captain's nemesis, the Prophet, who once had an iron grip over much of the world's commerce, escapes her island prison taking one of the teens hostage, Captain Magigate must face not only his long-time foe and erstwhile lover but also the ambiguous legacy of his inventions. “Glide” is a dark and quixotic look at what happens when invention reaches
beyond its pale to compensate for the shortcomings of heart and soul.
