Synopsis: A young American archaeological apprentice (Charvet) is drawn into a perilous expedition deep beneath the timeless sands of Egypt. Escaping death traps and ancient monsters, the expedition discovers a secret older than history, and a danger beyond imagination. The "sleepers" have awoken. The gods have arisen. And, the countdown to the end of the world has begun...

A long time ago, when

mankind was still in its cradle,

visitors came from the sky.

They were called the Osiris.

These gods gave us

unimaginable gifts.

The lights of which we had

never dreamed of before.

Astronomy, architecture, culture.

But all these came at a price.

The Osiris wanted earth for themselves.

The Pharaoh, the greatest man of all,

together with the God of Sunlight Ra

opposed this threat to their people.

Just when the visitors prepared

to summon their kin to come to Earth

an opportunity arising only

once every 5000 years,

when the stars align

in the right order

the Pharaoh stole the light from the

Osiris, blinding them with its brilliance,

leaving them in prison,

in a dungeon

hidden in the labyrinth

below his pyramid.

But some still believed

in the visitors way

and prepared for the time of their return.

So did the Princess Amanphur.

Take the baby and run from here.

He is the last of the bloodline.

Give thanks to the Gods.

The worship of Osiris

will be buried with her.

Praise for her journey

to the next world.

She will be laid to rest

in the glory of Ra.

Without the Pharaoh's knowledge,

very deep below the princess's

pyramid grave,

a gate was constructed...

When the stars align once more...

the visitors would again be welcomed by

a descendant of the Princess's bloodline...

But the Pharaoh mistrusted

his princess even in death.

So he made a key.

The Key of Heaven

to lock in tightly whatever secrets

she may have kept from him.

A guardian was created

to protect the tomb.

And he made sure that no one would

tell the secrets of the tomb buildings

so that Osiris could never return.

But if they did, their

revenge would be terrible.

A rain of fire would scorch the Earth and

every man, woman and child would die.

Only loyal servants of the Osiris would be

rewarded and turned into Gods themselves.

The stars are approaching

their alignment.

But the Key of Heaven has been lost,

the bloodline seems to have vanished,

until now.

You're late.

It is the traffic again, huh?

Oh, what can I say,

it was horrible.

But you look beautiful!

I'm sweating and I'm dusty. Too many

hours playing Tomb Raider, Mr. Adler...

- Where is he?

- In the tent.

Take a look at this

before you go see him...


You are amazing!

Against the risks...

7 days.

They built these pyramids to mirror

exactly what they saw in the heavens...

That mirror image only reappeared

once every 5000 years...

In seven days time,

the image will be complete again.

I checked again last night with

Mendella. They found nothing.

Tell him to widen the search area.

Tell him money is now no object.

We're running out of time.

We're late for Khalfani.

Oh, got to get on dealing

with that thieving goat...

Get the driver.

Yep, Masterton here.

No, that's not what I wanted.

I want it tomorrow. Not to next

week not next month. Tomorrow!

Masterton has confirmed the date.

Exactly in one week.

We have to find the entrance.

You know the tombs, right? I do not

understand why we can't locate it.

It's here.

It has to be.

We need to extend the dig. You organise

the lights so we can work through the night.

They're being delivered today. The bad

news is, there is a storm coming in.

- Oh great.

- Let's go inside.

You look tired, Professor.

Have you eaten today?

Too hot.

- You got it...

- You do not want to know how.

Why are museum staff

so damn stuffy?

Living with relics. Our people

will start looking like their dogs...

This is strange.

Now you tell me that is not

a visiting ship of some kind?
