"Biblical archaeologist" DON VERDEAN starts falsifying his findings after his wacky search for the Skull of Goliath meets with disaster at every turn. Verdean subsequently sets out to locate the Holy Grail for a deep-pockets Chinese magnate -- another wild and woolly adventure that ends in chaos. But when he's ultimately called to account for his massive frauds, Don Verdean realizes just what in life is really important.
