BED OF EARTH: In Venus, an ancient city built on water, a nobleman is laid to rest on the Isle of the Dead. This scene on the disputed land of a burial ground sets the state for this haunting tale. The bitter rivalty between two families, the della Scorpias and the Barbarons. VENUS PRESERVED: Centuries into the future, the sunken city of Venus has been rebuilt under a dome and computer-controlled to mimic surface-world reality. It is here that a macabre experiment to resurrect two lost souls..Jula, a beautiful first-century gladiatrix, and Cloudio Del Nero, the 18th-century composer, both murdered in their times...is taking place.
