In the middle of the South China Sea, a six-hour voyage from the Sultanate of Brunei, prospectors spot an ancient wreck on the sea bed. A team of archaeologists dives down and begins retrieving treasures -- more than 12,000 intact pieces of Chinese porcelain dating from the 14th century AD. The priceless cargo poses riddles as the archaeologists seek the identity of the ship and its destination, and the meaning of the symbols on the dishes. As the divers salvage the wreck, they gradually reconstruct the story of the world's first international trading network.
