Terrence Malick’s latest creation Knight of Cups is set to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February.

The official synopsis, according to Screen Daily, is as follows:

Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep.

Rick’s (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy.

The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?
