Summary
Jacob Van Oppen, the former strongest man on Earth, and his crafty manager, Orsini, make a good living by traveling around small South American towns, organizing bogus wrestling exhibitions in run-down theaters. Once this oddball pair disembarks at the village of Santa Maria, business really kicks off: the local newspaper sponsors the fight and helping hands place posters announcing an open call for a worthy adversary
