A narrator tells the legend of the Gold of Juarez, which was allegedly meant as a ransom for Moctezuma, held hostage by conquistadores. The treasure was lost long ago and never found. Nevertheless, many daring souls have set out to retrieve the lost riches of the Aztec Empire, even though the treasure is rumored to be cursed. Billy is a young man who doesn't know who his father is, and has no real last name. Due to the town's racism against his Mexican ancestry, during his childhood he suffered racial prejudice from the local population.
