Jack Hunter, an archaeologist, planned only to take a picture of a cuneiform tablet from once unsurpassed Mesopotmian metropolis Ugarit in present Syria, but is caught and has to steal it from a private museum in France. He refuses to join his mentor, professor Frederic 'Freddie' Shaffer, who believes the poem is a coded treasure map, on a relic hunt, until his friend is murdered to steal it. Obvious suspect is Syrian artifact trader Ali, so Jack flies to Damascas. There he must accept working with local, US-educated colleague Nadia and her driver Tariq. Their lives are threatened during the long relic quest, for one by common nemesis Albert Littman, but another secret lurks too.Written by
Though in reality it's really 3 separate Two hour Films (that is how I saw it) that need to be watched in order to make sense, considering this was on The Sci-Fi channel which is usually filled with garbage I was Pleasantly surprised as it's really quite good, and looks like it has a fairly large budget which is unusual considering there is No one in it that you will have heard of.
The acting is reasonably good by all concerned, and if you enjoyed the similar in vein 'The Librarian' Series of Adventure TV Movies then you will enjoy this.
