This is the story of the conquest of Peru – the defeat by 167 men of a highly organized empire of 10million people. Francisco Pizarro is the embittered, defiant commander of the invading Spanish and Atahuallpa, is the Incan king, Sun god-upon-earth. Between the two there grows a deep and understanding friendship.
