Director: George Mendeluk
Englishwoman, Camilla Wentworth and two slaves – a brother and sister
– are discovered attempting to flee from her abusive husband's ship.
Agatha, the sister, is shot while Jeffery and Camilla escape and are given
refuge at the Alvarado hacienda.
Wentworth claims his wife was kidnapped by his fleeing slaves and goes to
Montoya to get his aid in reclaiming his wife and property. Montoya is
none too enthusiastic about aiding Wentworth, but when the Captain offers
gold, he agrees to look into the situation.
Alvarado hacienda, Camilla learns that Robert Helm is living in Santa
Helena. Helm is her former fiancé and both Helm and Camilla seem far from
over each other – much to Tessa's concern.
Tessa's advice, Camilla goes to Montoya for assistance in escaping her
husband. Montoya agrees to aid her, but then agrees to turn over the
runaway wife to her husband in exchange for one of Wentworth's canons.
Will Camilla, Jeffery and Agatha escape from the odious Capt. Wentworth and will Helm choose to flee with his former love or stay in Santa Helena?
