In modern-day Egypt, professor Daniel Jackson (James Spader) teams up with retired Army Col. Jack O\'Neil (Kurt Russell) to unlock the code of an interstellar gateway to an ancient Egypt-like world.

Now, in order to escape from their intergalactic purgatory, Jackson and O\'Neil must convince the planet\'s people that Ra must be overthrown.
