Director: Jorge Montesi
An infamous bandit, El Serpiente,
and his gang are operating around Santa Helena. The bandit, wounded when
the Queen foils a kidnap attempt, has Dr. Helm kidnapped and taken to his
hideout. The Queen comes to Helm’s rescue and kills the bandit guiding
him home, setting up a conflict between the doctor and the Queen over the
doctor’s obligation to a patient and the Queen’s sense of justice
about helping a killer.
Serpiente, who blames Helm for his man’s death, takes his revenge out on
a poor outlying village. As the situation deteriorates, the outraged dons
go to Montoya and force him to personally lead the patrols against the
to the bandit hideout to convince the Serpent to leave the area, not
realizing the Serpent has marked him for death.
