Mowgli is a man-cub, raised by wolves and schooled in the jungle, who returns to civilization as a young man. When greedy villagers discover that he knows of a hidden treasure, they turn the town against him and follow him to the ruins of an ancient palace. The treasure hunters turn on one another and resort to murder for the prize they all desire.
"The original and grandest version of this well-known tale paints an exotic world of primitive peasant villages, dense, dark jungles, and alluring lagoons--all of which compose the surroundings of Mowgli (Sabu), a boy raised by wolves. Although Mowgli loves his world and is able to communicate with his animal companions, somewhere within himself he harbors a longing to return to his human roots and to the village of his birth. Once there, however, the villagers turn again him in a fit of greed when they discover that he has knowledge of a buried treasure. It is up to him to save his family from these gluttonous villains. The greedy treasure hunters follow Mowgli to where the riches are hidden. There, greed turns to murder as each villager vies to take it all, and as all hell breaks loose, the film delves even deeper into sinistert suspense."--Case.
