Famed Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro (Robert Shaw) returns to Peru for one final mission -- to conquer the Inca Empire, convert its people to Christianity and capture a supposedly massive cache of gold.

As the assault on the natives continues, the typically ruthless leader and his doomed hostage begin to respect -- and even admire -- each other.
