About Dr. Conway
In 1957, Sam leaps into the body of Dale, an American archaeologist on a dig in Egypt just as he and his partners on the expedition in a mastaba in North Saqqara. Dr. Ginny Will (Lisa Darr) and Dr. Mustafa El-Razul (John Kapelos) discover the tomb of the vizier Ptah-Hotep. Al tells him however that the discovery has to this day never been reported, and that both Conway and Will disappeared without a trace, presumed to have been victims of the rumored "Ptah Curse". Like all tombs, there is a curse supposedly placed on anyone who enters and Al would happily get out of there. As several of the expedition's crew are killed in bizarre accidents, Sam and Ginny try to race to save as much of the tomb as they can before a huge sandstorm engulfs them. As they find what they are looking for however, they become trapped in one of the tomb's inner chambers.
With two days worth of air but only twelve hours to escape the coming sandstorm, it's revealed that their colleague Mustafa, had other plans, to kill the two of them and steal both credit for discovering the tomb and an ancient jewel which was on the tomb mask, only to die at the hands of the "Ptah Curse", as Sam, with Ziggy and Al's help, is able to make sure that Dale and Ginny escape from the tomb and the area before the sandstorm hits.
