Every hero needs a friend.
Jacob, an 8-year-old mischief, dreams of finding a sacred Mayan treasure hidden in a small Slovak chateau. However, the real treasure he ends up finding is his lost father. The theme of the film is universally appealing, with an added value of exotic scenes from Latin America. The story is about the crisis of modern times, about searching and seeking… Sometimes, we look for a treasure which doesn’t necessarily have a real value for us. The project is based on a story by Katarína Moláková and Juraj Rayman.
