In 1917, Alma Pihl, a master craftsman in the House of Faberge, was charged to protect one of the greatest secrets in Russian history - a Faberge Egg that Peter Karl Faberge secretly created to honor his allegiance to both the people of Russia and the tsar's family. When Alma escaped Russia in 1921, she took the secret with her. Three generations later, treasure hunter Nick Laine is sick and fears the secret of the missing egg will die with him. With time running out, he entrusts the mission of retrieving the egg to his daughter, Ava. As the stakes are raised, Ava is forced to declare her own allegiance and the consequences are greater than she could have imagined.
