"Treasure and mystery, I like that combination." -- Sam Steele Jr., Private Eye
Our story begins with the disappearance of the Crystal Chalice - a priceless Russian treasure dating back to the era of Peter the Great - in the early days of the Bolshevik Revolution.
Hidden in the Soviet Union for many decades, the Crystal Chalice is smuggled by a personal valet into the United States during a visit by the Soviet Premier in the late 1950s.
Jump ahead to present day, when Sam Steele Jr. (Jacob Hays) is assigned a book report on the PremierŐs visit. His lack of interest takes a 180 degree turn when antique store owner Ms. Jenkins (Dee Wallace) tells him the story of the Crystal Chalice.
Unknown to Sam, an undercover Russian agent and a gang of treasure hunters led by Cash (Kevin Sorbo) are also pursuing the Crystal Chalice. It is up to the Junior Detective Agency - Sam, Emma and Doug the Dog- to find the treasure before it falls into the wrong hands.
