When ten-year-old Michael and his friend Justin sneak into the Dead Sea caves near the archaeological dig where Michael's dad is working, they find two 2,000-year-old squirrels petrified in sea salt. Hijinks ensue when Michael tries to sneak the squirrels back to the U.S., hidden in his backpack. What Michael believes to be really cool souvenirs may just turn out to be something much more.
