Half-brothers Noah and Gilead attend their archeologist father's funeral and, after recounting and comparing each other's misfortunes, become convinced that their misery is caused by a curse upon their father and his descendants resulting from the father's theft of the Holy Grail. Their solution is to embark on a quest for the Grail and return it to the location from which it was disturbed and removed by their father.[8][9][10][11][12]
