One Sunday afternoon, a strange man trying to sell a “wonder-vacuum” barges into the home of siblings Armin and Anna. Their mom is irked by his snotty attitude and quickly sends him packing. Before long, it turns out that the family’s precious scarab figurine, which their great-grandpa brought back from a trip to Egypt nearly a hundred years ago, has vanished from the mantel. Given that the salesman was their only visitor, Armin and Anna deduce he must be to blame. Enlisting their friends for help, the kids decide to recover their precious heirloom, cost whatever it may. Still, they could never expect what astonishing and dangerous turns the seemingly casual summer adventure has in store for them.
