Cheryl, owner of a miniature, red dachshund, has a lifelong dream of exploring as an archaeologist, which comes to fruition in 1972 as she and four other archaeology students and
two professors take a riveting seven month journey to Central America. Aware of the war
between two opposing armies of rebel soldiers deep in the jungles, they trek and dodge bullets
while exploring caves with lavish Mayan treasures. Temptation leads to eventual consequences
as they discover gold and crystal skulls prohibited to be removed. Their journey draws them to
meet missionaries, priests, and a personal contact with aliens and lights of an unknown source,
and later an ominous archaeologist amidst a tribe of ancient people leading to a deadly truth. A
devastating earthquake forever alters their travels killing two team members. Cheryl's pain is
eased by the love of a lost, little dachshund.
