Discovering part of an ancient Spanish treasure map, young Eldon Flowers dreams of finding gold. He could be rich, and he could also help Mr. Graff who is about to lose his home. Eldon secretly hopes this valiant deed will make him the hero he longs to be. With help from the other ButterCreamers, he embarks on a quest that will lead him to a concealed crypt in an old monastery, a deep cave hidden high in a mountain, and face to face with three greedy characters who will stop at nothing to find the treasure first. Eldon must often make difficult decisions that help him discover much more than gold. He finally sees himself as others do and begins to understand what being a hero really means. Written by

I'm sorry, Mr. Graff. I'm so sorry.
Ah, it's okay, Eldon. Nobody said it'd be easy. Besides, you did what you could. It's not your fault.
But I came so close.
Close? You didn't come close, Eldon. You were always there when we needed you.

The gang of helpful, friendly kids take on a new mission. This time they are after a casch of lost gold which they need to save the home and property of a neighbor, Mr. Gaff. Unfortunately, an evil Spaniard and his henchmen also have their eye on the treasure and will stop at little to get it. Each group has a third of an ancient map detailing the location of the loot, and much effort is expended in finding the missing segment. Of course, the missing piece is found and the kids must deal with the greedy, fortune obsessed Spaniard. This is a good childrens' film: I thought it carried a good message and had a satisfying ending.
