Summary

A close-knit group of friends find an Iraqi map. They are joined by a glamorous war correspondent and travel the length of Iraq, following the original Knights Templar route; in search of a treasure of unimaginable wealth. Encounters with the American security forces, Iraqi bandits and Islamic State, do not deter them from their quest. From the desperate city of Baghdad, they follow the Tigris River south, through the searing heat of the Iraqi desert and into Kuwait. Their journey culminates on the fabulously opulent Orel Island in the Arabian Gulf.
