A melodramatic adventure picture set in 1895 in Uganda starring Todd as a poor Irishman who travels to the Dark Continent to help a friend harvest a tobacco crop. On his arrival, Todd discovers that his friend was eaten by a crocodile. For some reason (the screenwriters were stuck?), his

friend's mistress, Greco, suggests they marry. They work on the tobacco crop with the help of natives, but when they all depart for a ceremonial ritual, the crop cannot be farmed. Todd turns to crocodile hunting and gets enough skins to go back to Ireland and send Greco back to France. When a

couple of traders take Todd's skins as their own, three natives are killed trying to get them back. Feeling indebted to the natives, he decides to stay with Greco and learn to adapt to the culture while teaching the natives Western ways.
