When opening the tomb of pharaoh Mamosis, Egyptologists Duraid al Simma, his wife Royan and Duraids friend Nick discover a vessel with seven papyrus scrolls. They are the notes of royal tomb-builder Taita. Unfortunately, the seventh scroll is heavily damaged and its contents hard to unravel. But the archaeologists aren't the only ones interested in the contents, as Multi-millionaire Schiller doesn't shy away from taking extreme measures to take possession of the scrolls.
