Blurring the boundaries between reality and fantasy, can faith and science unite to save two desolate hearts? Will love triumph over rumor and deceit, and can a man and a woman put history aside and rediscover just how deep their passion for each other lies? Antiquity follows French Archaeologists Joliette Deneauve and Olivier Botton, as they grapple with the mystic implications of a discovery hidden deep within the Siberian mountains. As Joliette pursues her obsession with death, she becomes bewitched by the spirit of a long dead God-King, and torn with despair, her grip on reality is tested. As Joliette attempts to decipher the incantations of a strange burial rite, painful memories from her own past begin to overcome her, and her faith in Botton is tested. Will she learn to trust him again, or will they slip farther away from one another, into the abyss and beyond?
