Professor Johnston (Billy Connolly) is an archeologist who specializes in medieval French history.  Along with his students and son, Chris (Paul Walker), the professor visits France to excavate a 600 year-old chamber.  The professor returns to America prematurely however for business, leaving his son and students to explore on their own.

When the burgeoning archeologists enter the compartment they discover two items recently placed inside it -- despite it being tightly sealed for six centuries.  One item is particularly puzzling: a plea for help from Professor Johnston, dated April 2, 1357.  But how did it get there?  More importantly, where is Chris' father?
