    • Synopsis
    • Jack Hunter (Ivan Serge) an adventurous treasure hunter goes to Syria after his mentor and father figure Professor Fredrick Shaffer (Sean Lawlor) is killed. Fredrick believed that the people of Ugarit had buried a treasure before they were wiped out by the Pharoh's. Ugarit was a town in Syria that existed during the Pharaoh's Reign. Ugarit can be found on old maps of the Middle East Region. Jack Hunter is one of the few Archaeologists in the world who can interpret Ugarit writings as he never did believe in Frederick's belief on a hidden treasure. However, Frederick had just discovered a clue that would prove his theory when he was killed. We follow Jack to Syria where he meets Nadia Ramadan (Joanne Kelly) Ministry of Archaeology for Syria who thinks Jack is only coming to Syria to steal there historical artifacts to sell to the highest bidder. She and her co-worker Tariq Khaliff (Mario Bassill) accompany Jack Hunter on his quest to find who killed Professor Frederick. During their trip they find out that the treasure is real, but Albert Littman (Thure Rufeinstein) an immoral buyer of artifacts catches word of the treasure . Jack, Nadia and Tariq are all caught up on a chase thru Syria, Egypt and Turkey trying in search of the lost treasure of Ugarit before Littman does.
