Animated adventure. Celebrated archaeologist Sara Lavrof discovers a parchment containing clues to the places where King Midas left the three pieces of the legendary necklace that gave him his power of turning everything to gold. Villainous Jack Rackham steals it, aiming to locate the pieces of the necklace and thus gain the power of Midas. Sara's old flame, construction worker and budding archaeologist Tad Stones (Tadeo Jones in the Spanish version), joins forces with Sara in a globe-trotting race to find the treasure first and stop its powers from being misused. Accompanied by Sara's research assistant Tiffany and a fun-loving mummy they know from a previous adventure, they travel to Granada (Spain), Turkey and a wild snowy mountain range, collecting the necklace's pieces as they go, but with Rackham's team always hot on their heels or indeed slightly ahead.
