|When an ex-Army Ranger finds a mysterious coded document on his farm purporting to be the key to the location of a hidden treasure, he enlists the aid of his daughter, a math student. There is stereotypical discussion of how she is uncomfortable talking to men about anything other than "number theory and differential equations" and how her advisor won't mind the delay in her thesis because he is in "outer space" ("math professors were like that"), but math itself is not as important to the solving of the puzzle as are lucky guesses about key words.
