Jack Hunter and the Quest for Akhenaten's Tomb
USA, 2008  TV  

Ivan Sergei, Joanne Kelly, Mario Bassil
Directed by Terry Cunningham


Jack Hunter, an adventurous treasure seeker, goes to Syria after his mentor Professor Fredrick Shaffer is killed. Shaffer believed that the people of Ugarit (in Syria) had buried a treasure before they were wiped out by the ancient Egyptians. Before he was killed, Frederick had discovered a clue that would prove his theory was true. The killing seems linked to a jewel called The Star of Heaven which is believed to be part of the treasure. Some believe this piece could be a great weapon or a great energy source. Jack is accompanied by Nadia Ramadan from the Ministry of Archaeology for Syria on his quest to find who killed Professor Frederick. They are caught up in a chase from Syria to Egypt and Turkey to find the treasure before their opponents do. In Egypt the quest leads them to the lost tomb of pharaoh Akhenaton, who raided Ugarit and stole its treasure.

Episode 2 from the 3-part television movie "Jack Hunter and the Lost Treasure of Ugarit".
