Claudia Cardinale is Popsy, who double-crosses her older partner Silva (Stanley Baker). Silva has arranged to divert diamonds from a large corporate-run diamond mine in the South American jungle, and Popsy does her "pop" wrong as they are both pursued by police. This French-language underworld adventure film has a screenplay by Henri Charriere (who also acts in the film), better-known for his screenplay for Papillion.
