Barney Chavez, manager of a plantation lost in the jungle, covets Dina, the woman of his employer. Having understood that the beautiful one would not be against the disappearance of her husband, older than it, Barney arrange themselves so that the death of this last has the air of an accident. What he is unaware of, it is that a strange witch was witness of his crime and, to avenge the victim, throws a fate with Barney. The night, he is transformed into gorilla, losing the control of himself completely. Dina, that Chavez quickly married, tries to come to him to assistance but puts the question: is this transformation real or acts it of a hallucination?
