In the days of the Alamo, a treasure was stolen by three soldiers of the army of Santa Anna and hidden in a secret place. When combined, the information written on three playing cards will reveal the location of the treasure. Those playing cards are in possession of a deserter who calls himself ‘general’, Morienda, a drifter, and Garrincha, an outlaw. Morienda has made an appointment with the famous gunman Bill Blood in a monastery, but at his arrival he is severely wounded and can only hand over his card and utter a few words. Blood infiltrates the gang of Munguya but is exposed by the bandit and beaten up. In the meantime Garrincha sets up a trap for Munguya with the help of a double-crossing arms-dealer. The three men finally meet at the monastery where the treasure is hidden.
