Summary:
"Mexico, 1846, Johnson, an American sociologist, discovers a vast source of precious metals on a Mimbreno-Apache reservation. He decides to annex this territory to the U.S., then expel and exterminate the Indians. He also benefits personally as the U.S. government is paying $100 for every scalp of a warrior, $50 for a women's and $25 for a child's. Only a few survive this massacre. But, the young warrior Ulzana is out for revenge for his tribe." Director Gottfried Kolditz wrote the script together with the leading actor Gojko Mitic. They based it upon original documents and reconstructed the imagined atmosphere of the Mexican War (1846-1848) at its beginning. During this time small bands of American scouts were dispatched to Mexico to plot the conquest of targeted regions. These infiltrators also organized provocations and instigated conflicts in the name of different groups.
