Dr. Francesca DeMarco, a beautiful archeologist, is searching an underwater site on the Adriatic Coast of Italy. Chasing stories of a mysterious group of Guardians, she runs into roadblocks as someone is trying to keep her from discovering the truth. News photographer Mike Scott is sent to do a story on the project, but when he and Dr. DeMarco are nearly killed in the process, he decides to help her discover who is behind the attacks. To unlock the mystery of the Guardians, they have to overcome a group of delusional fanatics bent on stopping them at any cost. If they are successful, they might just find a religious artifact lost when the Romans overran the Temple in Jerusalem. If not, they might be locked away in a tomb for the rest of their lives.
