1988: Gregor Spörri travels to Egypt for wreck diving. Afterwards he visits the historical sites of the country to collect ideas for a club interior in the pharaonic style. But Spörri has something else in mind: For a daring self-experiment, he wants to be alone for one night in the legendary Great Pyramid. Spörris intention doesn’t go unnoticed and brings him together with a grave robber who seems to know more about the pyramids than any Egyptologist. In the end, the old Arab allows him a glimpse of his family treasure, which includes a gruesome relic. Spörri is shocked, because it is the chopped off limb of a human-like giant, as they appear in old legends, myths and in the Bible. The pictures of it go around the world.
