A nomadic wrestler and his underhanded manager attempt to make some quick cash by staging a rigged wrestling match in a small South American village, but quickly find their scam going up in flames due to some unforeseen developments. Jacob van Oppen used to claim the title "Strongest Man on Earth," but these days the only thing he can be bothered to lift is a bottle of booze - straight to his lips. One day, Jacob and his manager Orsini arrive in the sleepy village of Santa Maria in hopes of staging another of their famous fights, and making some easy money. In no time, the local newspaper agrees to sponsor the brawl, and fliers seeking worthy challengers begin popping up all around town. But when an eager opponent shows up and refuses to play by the Orsini's "rules," the stage is set for a fight that could put the cap on Jacob's illustrious career.
