Synopsis

Having searched 3 years for his brother's murderer, Western frontiersman Old Surehand rescues the surviving passengers of a mail train robbed by a gang of desperadoes led by the General. To divert attention from the holdup, the General's men slaughter buffalo in Comanche territory; and, when they slay the son of a chief, the Indians threaten war. Surehand tries to prevent an Indian uprising by visiting his blood brother, Winnetou, a young Apache chief. After the General kills a prospector and steals his map to a gold mine, the prospector's niece, Judith, and her lawyer fiancé, Toby, look for the mine. Captured by the Comanches, they are released when Surehand vows to find the chieftain's son's murderer. Old friend Jeremy Wabble tells Surehand that the General is responsible for his brother's death. Surehand escapes from a trap set by the General, then ambushes the General's men with soldiers from a nearby fort. The General flees to an abandoned mine shaft, but Surehand, assisted by Wabble, finds and kills him in a gunfight. Peace restored, Surehand gives Judith and Toby a wedding present--the missing map.
