THE REAL TREASURE

With “Treasure Hunters” we wanted to make a movie about family values, emphasizing the importance of family and forgiveness. The main message is that nothing can be more important, nor superior than love in the family, being that the most precious treasure of all.

family and friendship

Erik, himself has his own problems when he stands up for Omar, Andrea’s younger brother, from a local gang who is messing up with him. The 3 kids end up being followed by Deik, the leader of the gang, into a dark warehouse.
