    Brief synopsis

    The movie shows the unique archaeological artefacts found in Peru, from the royal burial chambers of Sipán to the mummies on the Lake of Condors, shedding light on the desperate struggle fought by Peruvian archaeologists against grave looters in an effort to preserve their countrys ancient heritage - a battle whose outcome is still very much in the balance.
