Three men are each provided with a part of a map and a photograph from the time when they were children: the American Whitey, the Frenchman Étienne and the Japanese Lester. Their maps lead all of them to the same gold mine. When they meet they figure out they are all sons of the late mine owner Langdon. The land around the mine has been bequeathed to them and the saloon girl Mady whom they recognise as their sister. Nonetheless their heritage is under the sway of megalomaniac gangster boss Fuller, who dresses in toga and lives in a Roman-style palace with local women performing erotic dances. As a team they must fight him and his gang of thugs (who do wear Western outfit).
