In this Japanese adventure, a man is kidnapped by the wealthy president of a wartime trading company. He is taken because he is the only one who knows the location of 10,000 gold coins that the Japanese army left in the Philippines during WW II. His captors take him to a boat helmed by the financier's brother. He is then forced to join a small group disguised as Chinese merchants and U.S. Army troops and enter the Philippines where they make an arduous journey through the thick jungles and rugged mountains of North Luzon. Along the way, they find headhunters, but never the gold.
