The film follows Willi Korte – referred to by some as “art’s Indiana Jones” – on his journey to track down a stolen collection of medieval treasure. From WWII-era Germany to the National Archives in Washington D.C., the film takes the audience on a mesmerizing journey that eventually leads to the tiny Texas town of Whitewright, near the Oklahoma border. But as Korte gets closer to uncovering the truth, he stirs up a firestorm of controversy and conflict that rocks the suspect’s family and their small community.
