For anyone that really got bored with their eighth grade American history class, you are about to get a new lesson filled with exciting adventure that is filled with clues and keys about a vast treasure that has been collected from the days of the pharaohs on through the Crusades and Middle Ages. It might be under our own feet, and there is a family that knows where to start looking, and our story begins with one inquisitive boy, Benjamin Franklin Gates (Hunter Gomez), hunting around in his grandfather’s attic in on a stormy night in 1974.
His grandfather, John Adams Gates (Christopher Plummer), tells Ben the tale of the the treasure and the Masons and the Knights Templar, and how it all falls together and how his family is involved. The have only one clue, “The secret lies with Charlotte”. The story is interrupted when Ben’s father, Patrick Gates (Jon Voight) berates his father for filling Ben’s head with stories, and that the treasure is only a myth, and that it is time for everyone to let it go. Ben is not going to heed that advice, and that leads to a team of new treasure hunters in our time hunting for Charlotte in the Arctic.
