When Zaki finds a bracelet and an ancient skeleton, little does he know that he is also stumbling across a mystery that goes back generations - a mystery that involves ruthless shipwreckers, an innocent young woman and a quest for life. Dealing with the break-up of his parents' marriage, as well as trying to help his older brother, Zaki has to use all his ingenuity, thoughtfulness and skill to unravel the mysteries of the past and perhaps even to set long-trapped spirits free.
