Richard Greene stars as an English gentleman investigating the disappearance of two friends at the Austrian estate of the sinister Count von Bruno (McNally). Von Bruno secretly seeks revenge against the leaders of a British force that set the natives against him in colonial Africa: Burton's missing friends are among his victims, and Burton is now also in the trap.
