Joan Wilder (Turner) is a lonely New York romance novelist who receives a treasure map mailed to her by her recently-murdered brother-in-law. Shortly after, her widowed sister calls and begs her to come to Cartagena, Colombia because she’s been kidnapped by bumbling antiquities smugglers and the map is to be the ransom.
Hastily flying to Colombia, Joan is detoured from the rendezvous by Colonel Zolo (Manuel Ojeda), the man who killed Elaine’s husband. Joan ends up in the jungle and is almost killed by Zolo, but is saved by the swashbuckling American bird exporter Jack Colton (Douglas). For getting her to Cartagena, Joan promises to pay Jack $375.
Romance, adventure and an angry little DeVito ensues.
