Description

After their father is killed for a valuable piece of ancient jewelry, Wannis (Ahmed Marei), a young Egyptian man, and his brother (Ahmad Hegazi) are made privy to an important secret -- the nearby mountain holds ancient tombs. Wannis wonders whether his family should attempt to profit from this knowledge, or if they should help keep the sarcophagi a secret for the sake of historical preservation. His decision becomes crucial when an antiquities group arrives, seeking to protect the tombs. -- IMDB
