In Mexico, during the reign of Maximilian, a gunman named Alleluja is commissioned by the revolutionary general Ramirez to capture a bag of jewelry that the Emperor is sending the United States in exchange for weapons. Hallelujah is prepared to act not so much for the reward, but because he intends to keep the jewels for himself. However, many other competitors: Krantz, a shady arms dealer, a self-styled Russian prince, and a nun, which is actually a secret agent of the United States also want the jewels. Alleluja forms an alliance with the Russian and the nun to defeat the evil Krantz. After a violent confrontation with Krantz’s henchmen, Hallelujah and the Russian split the jewels, while the nun, whose mission was to identify and stop the weapons trafficking and receives a decoration from the U.S. government.
