In 1860, an old Dutchman, stumbled upon a vain of gold in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. It was so large, it would have made him very rich for the rest of his life. However when he went back to retrieve the gold, the mine was gone. He died shortly thereafter while still searching for his claim. Some say, the gold is said to be the lifeline of the Apache Indian tribe.
Over 600 people have died in the Superstition Mountains while looking for the famous Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. This high number of casualties and the lack of success finding the gold, has lead people to believe that there is a curse on the area. The curse of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine.
Jake Maloy, a retired special forces operator just back from Afghanistan, is struggling to put his civilian live back together. He is always trying to get that one next adrenaline fix with his beautiful and smart wife Aurora. The two alphas live an exciting life filled with adventures like scuba, flying small aircraft and off road adventuring.
On one of their adventures, in the Superstition Mountains, they accidentally crash their UTV. Unable to make repairs, they are all too willing to hike out. What was suppose to be an easy hike goes awry when they unknowingly find themselves in the area of the lost Dutchman’s gold mine. The curse of the mine takes effect.
A long time ago, the very best Apache Warrior was sacrificed by his ancestors. He walks the Earth for eternity as the Ghost Warrior. His job is to protect the Apache gold at all costs. He can only do this by killing anyone who comes close to discovering the mine. The Ghost Warriors only weapons are his spiritual powers and the knife and tomahawk that he brought with him into the afterlife.
Jakes military training and Auroras smarts turn out to be an exciting match for the Ghost Warrior and his powers. An epic battle, in the dark woods of the Superstition Mountains, ensues. Jakes worldly weapons have no affect against the Ghost Warrior. His body is already dead. Somehow, Jake and Aurora, must figure out how to save their own lives.
Using the Ghost Warriors weapons against him, the two manage to turn the tables and survive. As the sun rises on a new day, the battle that lasted through the night, concludes. Each side is forced to concedes the fight just prior to their demise.
As a sign of mutual respect for each others tenacity and combat savvy, the Ghost Warrior spares their lives. Then, Jake returns the Ghost Warriors Tomahawk to him as a gesture allowing him to continue on with his mission of protecting the Apache gold. With this gesture, the curse lives on.
