Intrepid explorers discover a tribe of beautiful amazons amidst a whole lot of stock footage in this low-budget adventure drama. Mr. Kirby Kookalamanza (Morton C. Thompson) and his sidekick Count Sparafucile (Don Orlando) are hiking through an uncharted section of Africa when they encounter Trent (Lewis Wilson), a lost and frightened American with a story to tell. Trent was abducted by the Ulama, a tribe of pale-skinned women who can fight like men but are as attractive as B-movie starlets. Incredulous but curious, Kookalamanza and Sparafucile head out to find the Ulama, but to their displeasure they discover the female warriors really do exist -- and have chosen to sacrifice them to their fire god, leaving Trent and a few defected Ulama warriors to save them from a painful death. The queen of the Ulana tribe is played by Dana Wilson, who would later change her name to Dana Broccoli after marrying Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, the producer behind the wildly popular James Bond films.
