SummaryIn 1930s South America, bandits destroy the oil well owned by Jeff Dawson and his partner Dutch Peterson. Desperate, they accept a dangerous transportation job, but are swindled out of their payment. With nowhere else to turn, they are hired by their old friend, Ward "Paco" Conway, now an oil baron married to Dawson's ex-love Marina. The bandits threaten to dynamite Paco's wells unless he pays them a bounty, and Marina, still in love with Dawson, will stop at nothing to get back the only man she ever loved.
