When a frantic stranger shows up at Nora's home, her grandfather, Rune, starts acting suspiciously. Intrigued, they follow Rune to a crime scene and soon discover that the felony is connected to the search for the legendary St. Olav's Shrine, the location of which has eluded people for centuries. As the Trio pursues a series of clues to uncover the Holy Shrine, they must stay one step ahead of The Shadow's ruthless agents who intend to reach the shrine first and steal the treasure.
