Le Paradis de Satan is set in the jungles of Brazil, where a once-thriving plantation faces financial ruin. Young financier Jean-Pierre Aumont arrives at the plantation to oversee its demolition so that the property can be purchased for a fraction of its value. But Aumont hasn't counted on falling in love with Jany Holt, the daughter of the plantation owner. Now dedicated to saving Holt and her dad from eviction, Aumont finds help from an unexpected source when drunken recluse Pierre Renoir reveals his true identity. As usual, the film's most interesting character is the villain, in this case duplicitous plantation doctor Lucas Girandoux.
