Can a woman trust tomb raiders to help her find her missing father?
Shirley Yang (Joe Chen) is an archaeologist who grew up in the United States. When she learns that her father has disappeared while exploring tombs, she returns to China to try to find her missing father. She meets Hu Bayi (Jin Dong), a tomb raider who learned the art of Feng Shui from an antique book that he inherited from his family and now has specialized knowledge of tomb configuration.
When Bayi and his partner fall victim to a curse, they team up with Shirley to help her track down her missing father in the hopes of finding clues that will help them to undo the curse. As they embark on an exploration of the "ghost cave" in the Taklamakan Desert in Xinjiang, North-West China, why does Bayi and his team get the feeling that they are falling into someone’s elaborate trap?
