Los Angeles, 2025. Yaakov and Yosef Peretz discover a treasure map hidden in their family’s robot; soon, their family embarks on an adventure that takes them halfway around the world to save a valuable and revered religious artifact.
In the Mojave Desert, the Peretz family unearths a mysterious treasure chest stolen from a Santa Barbara billionaire named Aharon Sapir. Yaakov and family manage to return the treasure and to outwit the pirates who stole it, but soon learn of a greater danger to the Sapir family fortune. On the Tunisian island of Djerba rests the Sapirs’ most sacred heirloom: the world’s oldest Torah scroll, an artifact worth a fortune. Another pirate is after the ancient scroll, and the Peretzes’ trusted robot dealer may be involved. Yaakov and family journey to the other side of the globe to track down a ruthless pirate and to thwart his wicked plan. To succeed, Yaakov must decide between saving his prized robot, built with his very hands, and protecting a greater good.
