In a remote Singapore lockup lies a stunning collection of Chinese bronze artefacts, unseen and forgotten for almost five decades, since the Cultural Revolution of Maoist China. Over one hundred bronze pieces, believed to be from the Shang and Zhou dynasties, have remained hidden . . . until now. This documentary traces the mysterious journey of these potentially priceless pieces from China to Singapore. What happens next is a present-day quest to discover their true authenticity and value, using forensic tests and expert analysis to reveal the real story behind these lost treasures.
