National Treasure: A Love Letter is the thrilling, edge-of-your-seat adventure starring Academy Award (R) winner Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates reimagined as a love letter. This new translation pulls from lines of poetry from Project Gutenberg which contain the character sequence “love” and attempts to replace each line of the National Treasure script with a corresponding line of poetry that is understood to have a similar meaning. Each page of this new document has been carefully printed on nine sheets of parchment and mounted on frames to float each “historical” document off the wall. In a race against time to find and decipher ancient riddles that will lead to the legendary Knights Templar Treasure viewers have rubbed the documents with lemon wedges further obscuring parts of the document in an attempt to uncover a hidden message.
