When Atahualpa, son of the powerful Incan emperor, realizes the Spanish conquistadors intend to ravish and destroy his civilization, he attempts to launch a resistance designed to preserve his threatened nation. Unfortunately, factions within his own tribe are determined to discredit the haughty young prince. As Atahualpa works feverishly to save his people from the foreigners, he must also protect himself from jealous and shortsighted enemies.
