Would you recognise a miracle if you saw one? An ancient myth is unlocked when a small town librarian embarks on a quest to find out who anonymously returned a book, 113 years overdue. A clue scribbled in the margin and an unclaimed dry-cleaning ticket takes us on an adventure that spans the globe and the ages. Underneath the Lintel tells the story of one mans journey of self-discovery.
