The Partner of God is a man whose ambitions are so huge that he imagines himself the chief arbiter of what happens in his country of Peru and in the section of the Amazon jungle he has gotten hold of. This exuberant, if thoroughly evil, capitalist is determined to put the Indians living in the jungle to work gleaning rubber for sale up north. He has quite a few allies at the American embassy, and almost anybody from elsewhere with money to invest is involved with him in heavily exploitive schemes, which either involve the destruction of life, or of resources. In this Cuban production, the greedy capitalist meets his come-uppance when the wild Indians chance upon him when he is not surrounded by his usual squad of protectors.
