Kha, architect and builder of tombs for the pharaohs, has to undertake the journey to the Underworld, amid a thousand dangers. Eternal life is at stake, but the risk is ending up being dissolved into cosmic nothingness. Telling us the story of his adventure is Jeremy Irons. His words take us inside the secret world of Egyptian mythology, interweaving the story with the history of the Museo Egizio in Turin. Along the Nile, among the magnificent monuments of Giza, Luxor, Karnak, in the Valley of the Kings and the workers’ village of Deir el-Medina, the story told by Irons follows the tracks of Italian explorers and archaeologists in the places where they collected the most important pieces making up the Turin collection. From Ramesses II in Turin, to the treasure of Tutankhamun, the bust of Nefertiti, the Red Scribe in the Louvre, and the Rosetta Stone in London, this documentary is also a journey among the most beautiful archaeological finds Egypt has left us.
