Bayard, the brutal prison warden, aids wealthy Jacques Boucher in a scheme to get cheap labor by forcing prisoners into debt and then sending them to Boucher's plantation to work in a secret gold mine. Rigaud and his friend Lulu learn of the mine and succeed in killing or capturing those responsible for the reign of terror. The prison is closed and Rigaud wins a pardon and the governor's daughter, Giselle.
