National Treasure: Edge of History follows 21-year-old Jess Valenzuela as she tries to hunt for the treasure of Montezuma with the help of her friends, uncovering family secrets in the process while competing against a ruthless treasure hunter.

Jess is a young and bright DACA recipient living in America with dreams of one day working as a Special FBI agent in the cryptanalysis division. However, it’s not just her dreams that stand at risk of being compromised but also the mythical treasure of Montezuma.

After a retired FBI agent shares the clues to the legendary treasure and tasks Jess with finding it and protecting it from corrupt forces, the girl with big ambitions and a knack for solving puzzles and patterns gears up and gets to the hunt.

Along with a ruthless treasure hunter hell-bent on doing anything to get that treasure, another thing imparting great weightage to this hunt is Jess’s personal family history and heritage attached to said treasure.

Action, adventure, and mystery make up the three major mass-appeal genres that National Treasure: Edge of History has to proffer to the audiences. Here are other shows like National Treasure: Edge of History available on Netflix, Disney+ & more:
