An Andalusian boy journeys to a nearby town on the faith that a recurring dream is a prophetic sign. He consults a Romani fortune-teller who tells him that it points to a treasure in Egypt. Santiago journeys to Egypt, encountering an old king named Melchizedek who teaches him about the idea of a Personal Legend. The king tells Santiago that if he deeply desires something, the Universe will help him achieve it. Santiago journeys to find both his treasure and his Personal Legend in a deeply philosophical journey that will teach him about life, love and the fulfillment of dreams.
