The Quest

Mankind´s greatest mystery lies in wait...

Civil war rages in Ethiopia. A priest waits to die in a parched prison cell; he has not seen daylight for four decades. But then a mortar shell hits the compound, and the prisoner and his secret are free.

Two reporters and a beautiful photographer save this wounded man, who tells them something too incredible to believe: the location of the Holy Grail. Thus begins an impossible quest that will pit them against murderous tribes, deadly assassins, fanatical monks, and ultimately, themselves.

The Quest is a breakneck search for an ancient legend amid a dangerous jungle war - and no one´s coming out unscathed.
