With Maria Félix, Gérard Philippe, Jean Servais 

When the governor of a prison on the remote Caribbean Island Ojeda is assassinated, his secretary, Ramón Vasquez, assumes the role of acting governor until a replacement can be appointed. Vasquez, an idealist, exploits this opportunity to improve the lot of the prisoners, and to start an affair with the former governor’s widow... Based on the novel La fièvre monte à El Pao by Henri Castillou.
