An explorer looking for a priceless missing Inca treasure in the Amazon jungle runs across a lost young woman named Eve, who is worshipped as a goddess by jungle natives. Eve is also being pursued by a showman who wants her for his freak show; by the natives who now want to kill her for helping a white man; and by an explorer, Eve's grandfather, who wants to silence her.

TV Guide called it a "very poorly done story of a Tarzaness" ; while Dave Sindelar wrote in Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings, "it's a dull affair, especially during the long middle section where the hero returns to civilization, and any interest it does generate is more due to the presence of several familiar faces (Herbert Lom, Christopher Lee, Fred Clark) than anything that actually happens. One fun thing to do in the movie is to keep track of how many characters die as a result of their own monumental stupidity; I count at least three."
