SYNOPSIS: Ex-convict Brutus Jones, aided by his double-crossing ally Smithers, manages to make himself dictator of a remote island in the West Indies. When the islanders revolt, the delusional Emperor escapes into the darkness of the forest. With the overwhelming heat and the sound of the trackers' drums behind him, Jones is driven to make his way through every lead bullet in his gun, right down to the silver one he is saving for himself.
