Adventurer Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) is a secondary challenge to the more difficult quest to find treasure. The death of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, has always been an unsolved case in the history of the United States. According to the investigation, the murderer John Vox Booth was actually abetted by someone to commit the shocking murder. When Gates attends a public lecture, a man named Mitch Wilkinson (Ed Harris) in the audience claims that Gates’ grandfather is inextricably linked to Lincoln’s death. So Gates began to investigate clues related to John Booth, and found that a book called “National Tantric” was the key to answering all questions. However, only the president of the United States knows the location of the national tantra. In order to find out the truth, Gates took the risk and kidnapped the president.
