An Irish adventurer arrives in a small town in Guyana. He says he’s looking for his father, but like most other people in the movie, he’s after the jewels father O’Hara is supposed to have in his possession. This adventure movie set in contemporary South America shows some similarities to the Zapata westerns, but the European adventurer who teams up with a revolutionary hero, is not an expert in warfare, but a sound engineer who uses his skills to confuse his opponents - Scherpschutter
