"Caboblanco. Where legends are born."
The body of a shipwreck researcher is found on the coast near Capoblanco in Peru. He turns out to be murdered, although the local authorities consider it an accident. But Giff Hoyt (Charles Bronson), an American, bar owner and long-term resident doesn't believe the official version at all. His interest is further piqued when Marie (Dominique Sanda) arrives in town and her passport is revoked by the corrupt authorities. Former Nazi Beckdorff (Jason Robards) lives in a kind of fortress. He is looking for treasure and Giff suspects him of the murder.
