Hidden in the thickest region of the Everglades lies an archaeological secret so big that it will change the behavior of mankind forever... A mysterious, maritime journal is discovered in 1896 by a Florida lighthouse keeper that links the lighthouse to a hidden South Florida treasure. But before the lighthouse keeper can act on it, the journal disappears. Some 120 years later it resurfaces in the hands of Tony Hawthorne, an overzealous business tycoon who assembles a modern-day expedition on a quest to search for the exhilarating answers. Staci Woodward leads the way as a South Florida archaeologist looking to prove herself. Laura Stephenson is a straight-laced Coast Guard officer who unknowingly holds the key they are all looking for. But as temptation closes in, each one faces a shattered revelation of themselves with unintended consequences.
