Adventurer, traveler and treasure-hunter Preston Sterling was hired by a billionaire Vincent Omega to find the mystical artifact in English mythology: Excalibur, the sword of the legendary King Arthur. Starting from Glastonbury Abbey, Preston proceeds to the ruins of Tintagel Castle located in the county of Cornwall in the south-west of England, and eventually comes to the lake in French Brittany, followed by thugs of Mr. Yakamoto, a shady art collector.
