Lost City Raiders

Synopsis: In 2048, global warming caused the sea level to raise high above most cities. John Kubiak runs a salvage business with his adopted orphan sons, cocky Jack and erudite, cautious Thomas. Yet top priority, above profit, is a secret project for New Vatican cardinal Battaglia which even the boys only learn about when it kills John. It's retrieving the pharaonic scepter of Sobek, according to legend commanding the sea-level. The Kubiaks' ruthless rival in this relic hunt is against real estate super-tycoon Nicholas Filiminov, who also recruited Jack's ex, Giovanna Becker, by promising to finance her geological sea control research.
Director(s): Jean de Segonzac

That's an old monastery that for centuries

has been used for storage.

Hard to believe.

All these years, right under our nose.

- Do you have any drawings of this building?

- Yes, I'm sure there are.

Giacopetti, search the archives.

Bring everything we have

on casa di Santo Stefano.

Right away, your eminence..

Did you tell him?

John? We have a problem.

I fear there is competition.

No one outside the order

knew about the ledger.

Yet, the man who told us its whereabouts

was murdered last week.

Tortured, it seems, for information.

- People will stop at nothing.

- We are in a race against time.

Second trembler this week.

Yeah. With these quakes

and our enemies closing in,

... it will be too dangerous right now.

Cardinal, me finding the scepter

is the only hope we have.

Thank you, john.

All right.

What's the job?

Well, I don't wanna lie to you guys.

This job is dangerous.

Dangerous? Looks pretty simple.

The building's half submerged.

I mean, we can just go into this top window

and you can shoot right across..

no, no, no.

We gotta go in silent and discreet.

No one can see us go inside.

Why all the secrecy?

'Cause that's what the vatican wants.

Not only are they cheap,

they're paranoid.

If you don't like the rules,

just say you're out, Jack.

All right then, we go in an hour.

I wanna be in and out

while it's still dark.

Oh, and get rid of that hangover.

I need both of you guys at your best.

Hey, don't look at me.

nothing personal, Jack,

but I'm coming with ya.

Nothing personal, pa,

but I think I can handle it myself.

There's not a lot of margin

for error on this one, son.

It's an old building.

One wrong move could be fatal.


okay, so, on the eastern side

of the building there's a circular wall grate.
