Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) is obsessed with finding the one of the greatest fortunes ever known to man…. but he’s not the only one! A coded map will lead him to the treasure. The only problem is, it just so happens to be written on the Declaration of Independence, the most closely guarded document in the U.S.! To decode the map, he’ll need to steal it before a ruthless enemy (Sean Bean) beats him to it. After the 2004 film is broadcast, stay tuned to watch its exciting 2007 sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets!
