Professor Lira (Alfonso Castano) asks masked wrestler Santo for help to find the treasure of the Crying Woman - a legendary Mexican Spirit - & give it to Child Welfare - as this is the only way to stop her from killing each first-born of the professor's family - the family of the Crying Woman's husband when she was still alive (& played by Natalia Kiki Herrera Calles) & killed her own sons as to take revenge for him cheating on her. As he sees the treasure hunt is for a good cause, Santo of course agrees &, with his friend & sidekick boxer Mantequilla Napoles, goes to search her coffin to get a medallion vital for deciphering the treasure map the professor has.
But not only do Santo & Mantequilla awake the spirit of the Crying Woman once more by taking her medallion, they are also brought to the attention of Sevora Segovia (Rene Cardona, usually a director of Santo- & similar wrestling-movies), a gangster who wants to get his hands on the treasure himself. & eventually, he even gets to the medallion & the treasure map via professor Alvarez, an associate of Lira, but has him foolishly shot before Alvarez can help him decipher the map.
Professor Lira meanwhile is killed by the Crying Woman, by now on a killing spree and after all the members of Lira's family, so Segovia has no other choice than to lure Santo & Mantequilla Napoles into his headquarters to let them retrieve the map & madallion - since he figures they are the only people capable of understanding the map. & understand they do, as they soon find the treasure, while the Crying Woman has already abducted the grandchildren of professor Lira & moves in for the kill, and the only thing to prevent it would be the treasure was handed over to Child Welfare in time. But then there are the gangsters wanting to steal the treasure, too ...
Well, of course it has a happy ending !


Actually based on a legend of Mexican origin, which has been filmed repeatedly (without wrestlers) prior to this movie, this is a childish but nice wrestling-horror movie, steeping kneedeep in pulp fiction using all the familiar elements like gangsters with scientific gadgets, caverns & cobwebs, ghosts & pacts with satan & of course, a masked superhero, & all is done with characters - including Santo & Mantequilla - wearing ridiculously funky & colourful 70's outfits.
