Two adventurers, Davy and Tim, save a man named Fidel chased by outlaws. On his back they discover that a map has been drawn. Intrigued, they force him to reveal its meaning: it is half of a map that indicates where hidden treasure is located, the other half is in the hands of a sheriff and former colleague of Fidel. The three then decide to join together and, although reluctantly, must count in their number also a crooked gambler named, Tricky, who has managed to make himself indispensable. The journey toward the treasure is initially hampered by the intervention of Sam, the sheriff, but he is killed but Trikie manages to memorize the directions of the part of the map possessed by the sheriff. Following the difficulties begin to multiply, both for the discord that arises among the four, and an attack by a group of bandits. They save a girl named Manuela, who had been captured by the bandits and Tim has saved from a lynching, and he falls in love with her. Fidel and Tim are killed, then it's time for Davy to deal with Tricky, who has hired five assassins. Davy, left alone with the girl and the gold, before abandoning the wild region, gives the villagers the precious metal, which has been the price of so much blood.
