Plot Synopsis: 
(courtesy of D. Kytasaari - http://epguides.com/djk/JulesVerne/works.shtml)
A young girl refuses to marry the man her uncles have selected for her until she sees the "Green Ray."

Legend has it that this is an indication of true love.

NOTE: The "Green Ray" is a real phenomenon in nature, where a "Flash" of green light may be seen in ideal conditions, as the sun disappears below the horizon.
