Leah of Nod goes through life as a thief. But, very little of what she steals remains with her. She is under the power and control of the evil Dybbuk. That is until, one day, a huntsman named Yadid arrives in the village. Each week new gifts begin to appear in Leah’s cottage. She begins to change. Soon, however, she is betrayed by those closest to her and sentenced to die for her crimes. Leah discovers that great and true love can even over come death.

User Reviews: Take out your bibles and read that after Cain slew Abel and he was ordered out of the Garden of Eden he went and dwelt in the land of Nod. The Return gives us a look at the place in medieval times.
Where we’re given a C.S. Lewis like tale of the Jesus story as seen through the eyes of a woman named Leah played by Heather Ricks who changes over the time of the film from a girl who acts as a come on for thieves to one who dedicates her life to others. All due to the character of a mysterious huntsman named Yaddid who sacrifices himself for her when she’s caught.
If you see the film and read your bible you know as Paul Harvey used to say, the rest of the story. The allegory is unmistakable. As our protagonist Heather Ricks gives a fine performance as Leah. Special mention should also go to David Ruprecht as the Taker who’s a medieval police stoolie.
One of the better Christian films I’ve seen.
