In tumultuous Mexico in the 1860s a band of revolutionaries led by General Ramirez plan to use the jewelry in the possession of the oppressive governing forces to finance their armed struggle. They hire Hallelujah, an American gunfighter, to steal the jewelry for them. He succeeds, but the jewelry turns out to be fake. Hallelujah goes off in pursuit of the real jewels. Also after it is a mysterious nun, a flamboyant Russian nobleman, and assorted bandits, soldiers and townspeople.
