A stone-age hunter named Vuud (played by George Eastman) is part of a nomad group that wanders around making tools from sticks. As the up-and-coming future leader of the tribe, Vuud is not respected by his father, Iksay (played by Benito Stefanelli). Iksay instead wants to nominate Ela (played by Sam Pasco) who is a more even-tempered hunter than Vuud.
However, out of jealousy Vuud decides to kill his father before he can name Ela as successor. After the priest sees him do it, Vuud kills him immediately. Ela banishes Vuud from the tribe.
As he wanders in the wilderness, Vuud sees a huge volcanic eruption one night. Searching the lava the next morning, he finds iron that has somehow been shaped in the form of a crude sword. He kills a lion with it thereby absorbing the precious lifeforce of the jungle’s most fearsome ruler.. A woman named Lith appears (played by Pamela Prati) and tells him he is in possession of a divine gift.
Going back to his tribe, he battles Ela and conquers him with his new weapon. He sends Ela to a far off land, but the tribe there also finds iron in the lava field.
