In the film, coming of age preteens embark on an exciting, last ditch adventure hoping to save the only home that "Champ" (Luke Loveless) has ever known. Along with his friends "Stryker" (Caleb Baumann from shows on Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel), "Jeanne" (Reagan Shumate), and "Pip" (Abbie Grace Flynt), the four head back in time only to meet with dangerous and threatening characters who are only "out for themselves"! The four unintentionally enlist the help of Champ's Mom "Carol Brown" played by Patty Lambert, from films, "My Sweet Holiday", "Christmas Comes Home", and Champ's Dad "Tim Brown" portrayed by Joey Thurmond, from Spike Lee's "Son of the South", "Scott Free", "Ninety Sunsets" and others, to help them search for native Cherokee Indian Gold.

The Skeleton's Compass just received the Dove "Approved for All Ages" approval from Dove.org who reviewed the movie as: "The movie features nice themes about forgiveness and the importance of family. Champ puts it nicely when he tells his family and friends "The best part was searching (for the gold) with you guys". Due to these admirable traits, the film has earned our Dove seal for All Ages."
