Diogo (Diogo Infante) is a cartographer from Portugal stationed at the Coimbra Fort, a compound in the Mato Grosso regions of Brazil.

His life takes an unexpected turn when he falls in love with Anote (Luciana Rigueuira), a beautiful young woman whose family rules a local tribe of Guaicuru Indians.
