       Additional Information  
     
      During finals week at the University of Cincinnati in 1949, History professor Adam Shaw is astonished to receive a telegram from his old friend, the Dalai Lama, imploring him to visit him in Tibet. Adam immediately feels a rush of curiosity and intrigue-something he hasn't experienced in a long time.

    When Adam arrives in Tibet, he soon realizes that this is no social call. The Dalai Lama wants him to retrieve the All-Seeing Eye, an artifact that has the power to create a great force of energy for those who possess, protect, and care for it. His Holiness fears the invasion of Tibet by Communist China and knows that possessing the Eye will help save his country and the very foundation of Buddhism.

    Adam and Tim embark on a quest to find the Eye-one that will take father and son on a journey of renewal in both their own lives and in their relationship with each other. They eventually travel to Afghanistan where it is rumored that a group of monks has protected the Eye for centuries. Will Adam and Tim find the legendary relic in time, or will father and son discover a much deeper understanding that some things are not destined to be found?
