The Royal Hunt of the Sun

Setting off to find a fortune in the legendary Kingdom of Gold, prejudiced adventurer Robert Shaw encounters an admirable people and civilisation he was not expecting. Shaw and the Inca leader (Christopher Plummer) develop a mutual respect but this is not shared by their men and tensions mount as the travellers clamour for gold. A grand tale of civilisations clashing and empires falling seen through a delicate friendship. Based on the play by Peter Shaffer ('Equus', 'Amadeus').
