This is a fast paced horror/thriller centered around a lost artifact that has existed since before the birth of Christ. A middle eastern farmer stumbled across the artifact thousands of years ago, and while owning it he had the ability to achieve immortality by enslaving the people around him, causing them all to age particularly fast. The artifact came into possession of the Germans in WWII, and after that was lost. Our first character delves into the criminal underworld of his own city, looking for a ways to do good in an undercover fashion. He is then employed by a bizarre group of men who send him on a wild goose chase to recover the artifact from an old museum curator in a separate part of the city. The origin of the artifact and its abilities remain unknown to him. Later, in a different part of town, a homicide detective is woken up early by means of his loud telephone ringing. He is being called out to a robbery homicide at a curator's house. Soon after arriving on the crime scene, the detective takes samples of the literature and writings that were kept in the same room as the thieved item, he takes them to an old professor at the university he attended. The professor tells him the tale of the middle eastern farmer, but also tells him of a group of Celtic scouts that discovered the enslaved empire, and looted the artifact back to their homes for personal wealth. The detective chases after the artifact until stumbling across a clue that links someone dear to the him, someone right under his nose he would've never expected to be involved with such a thing.
