John (Matthew) is a history teacher, recently laid off in a budget-crunch. Just as his world hits rock-bottom, he receives a phone call from Charleen, who tells him about a major spiritual awakening happening in Peru. With little on his plate, and with 18th Century dreams and a Peruvian travel brochure in his mailbox, John heads down to South America, stepping right into the middle of a political power struggle. The government, which feels threatened by discovery of eight ancient scrolls, joins forces with the church to eliminate the problem – and anyone who gets in the way. Despite being a lost soul in a strange land, one encounter after another convinces John his life’s purpose may just be to protect scrolls’ messages.
