One man's journey into the world of the so-called 'Bloodline' conspiracy, at the heart of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, where a secret society, the Priory of Sion, claims to have guarded evidence of the marriage of Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ, their children and their descendants down through the centuries.

In 2012, Ben Hammott (real name Bill Wilkinson) confessed that his discovery of a tomb and related artifacts was all a hoax, revealing that the actual tomb was part of a full sized set located in a warehouse in England. See more »
There's not much to this movie. The director/narrator/prime interviewer rambles around southwestern France with an Englishman, looking for evidence of the Priory of Sion and the bodies of Jesus, and/or Mary Magdalene, and they do some amateur "archeology" that does nothing but disrupt and disturb the "sites" they find.
With interviews featuring such people as a guy who looks like they found him at a bus stop (my hair looks like a bird's nest, your argument is invalid), another who looks like a failed stage magician (complete with bad "dramatic" lighting, barely contained smirking/laughter, and several liar's tells), and locations that look like miniature sets made of clay, Kleenex, and painted styrofoam, its hard to take this film seriously. Its good for a few laughs, but little else. A trip to the film's website for the "latest news" gets you very little but the cast's activities for the last 3 years, and a pitch to spend a couple thousand dollars for a tour of the region.
