In 1942, when John Verboeket was five, he buried one of his most prized possessions - a special sharp-shooting marble - under a house in West Java as there were fears the Japanese army would soon be invading. John and his family were later taken prisoner and sent to a camp, but the marble was never forgotten. 71 years later, John has returned to Indonesia to look for the treasure from his childhood.
