Lord Magnus Martel, head of the Martel European Research Foundation, tells a story of a masonic order called the Knights Templars (sic). They are searching for an ancient relic, the Loculus, which was made from a piece of the true cross, and contains within its construction the nails used for the crucifixion. They are coated in Christs blood from which his DNA can be extracted. The story involves the Morovignian line, Renne-le-Chateau and sacred geometry. The great work of alchemy is to resurrect Christ. A Knights Templar ceremony is depicted and several all-seeing eye symbols and pentagrams are depicted. A TV newscast mentions an illegal masonic order called the P2 CIA; the camera then pans to the word "masonic" on a newspaper article. The overall theme of the movie is anti-masonic.
