Logline: Adam feels restless at home and he looks out from behind the curtains. He senses that he is being watched. Outside, the stalker watches Adam’s house. Later, the stalker follows him to the shopping mall, monitors his movements and conversations. That night as Adam is leaving a pub after a few drinks, he is relentlessly and mindlessly pursued by the stalker. A terrifying chase through the street ends with near disaster.

What did Adam do to deserve this? Was he having an affair? Was it someone he gave the wrong signal to? That girl he smiled at as he stopped his car at the bus stop unsure whether to give her a lift? Maybe that guy he jumped in the queue at the post office? Was it just some crazy nutcase for whom Adam was now a marked man. This could happen to anybody and that’s scary.

The Dresden Codex takes the viewer into a deep conspiracy theory concerning the Mayan Scripture, the pyramids, the calendar and ancient symbols. After German detective Thomas Becker is suspended from his department, he begins to investigate the cult mysterious murder case alone and becomes obsessed, due to the case possibly being linked to the disappearance of his wife, Majke. The murders are seen to be similar to the early Mayan rituals of sacrificing humans to cleanse them in the eyes of their Gods. Thomas gains a lead in the case as the cult attempts to kidnap a young boy who is the son of victims of previous ritual sacrifices. Working with Mayan expert, Jane, Thomas grows closer to uncovering the biggest secret mankind has faced which has been guarded for centuries to unravel at exactly the opportune moment.

The Dresden Codex is named so due to the most commonly known written relic of the Mayan civilization, one of the Mayan codices, is currently residing in Dresden, Germany where it has been since 1739.
