This unlikely, somewhat clichéd European "western" by Robert Hossein (scripter, director, and lead) is set in an unnamed Latin American country suffering under a dictator. A revolution is underway, or at least there is a strong guerrilla movement here. The leader of the guerrillas manages to capture the daughter of the dictator and then has to take her as a captive back to the revolutionary forces' base. Along the way, the two exchange heated glances, not all stemming from anger. By the time they reach rebel headquarters, they are in love. Now the guerrilla leader has trouble on his hands because the men underneath have their own plans for his captive, none of which entails keeping the new couple together.
