A twist of fate thrusts former World War II commando and treasure hunter Brian Ritter into a race across Europe. The gold is waiting for the right person. Death, the corrupt Colonel Voko and the Russian mob are waiting for the wrong move. Ultimate fortune rests on Ritter’s unholy alliance with an unlikely team. Alfred Thompson is a wily English master of deceit who cons his nephew, Mitch Connall, into accompanying Ritter. The pair are joined by Elias Khoury, a shady Lebanese arms dealer and Jaqueline Simonet, a brilliant French beauty with a sinister secret. Based on real events, this romantic-adventure trek from the Caribbean to the Venice enables Ritter not only to make peace with his past, but also to find love for the first time since his life-altering jump into the brewing Greek civil war. This full-length screenplay is an adaptation of the novel written by former Associated Press foreign correspondent Frank N. Hawkins, Jr.
The creative team is hard at work adapting Frank's other novel, The Zurich Printout.
