Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids.
Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an
Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one
knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the
obstacles along the way But what starts out as a journey to find worldly
goods turns into a meditation on the treasures found within. Lush,
evocative, and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is art eternal
testament to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of
listening to our hearts.
