Aided by an Atlantis artifact, Samantha and her makeshift team race the clock to locate the enormous diamond and trade it for the man who owns Sam’s heart.
But the diamond Sam seeks is no ordinary gem, it's not even an extraordinary gem...it’s proof of a power beyond anything the modern world can imagine.
