Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) has settled comfortably into his position as a Librarian, enjoying the countless adventures he's been on since being chosen to collect and maintain priceless historical artefacts from around the world. Sure, his mother still tries endlessly to set him up on blind dates, intent on seeing her baby boy settle down with a nice girl, but scholarly Flynn is much too passionate about his work to have time for a real relationship. When Flynn is sent an ancient Egyptian scroll in the mail, he is shocked to discover it to be the secret map to King Solomon's mines - a legendary labyrinth where the king kept his most prized possessions and among the fabled treasure trove, an ancient book, known as the Key of Solomon, rumoured to hold the power to control the underworld and to bend space and time. When the scroll is suddenly stolen, Flynn knows the world would be in terrible danger if the Key were to fall into the wrong hands. So he sets out on a dangerous mission that takes him through the vast plains of the African Gedi province to murky swamplands where ravenous hippos attack from every side and deep into underground lava chasms filled with the howling ghosts of ancient kings.
