Lo-Zar is summoned by a native named Pabai who shows the jungle hero dead animals along the river. Testing a handful of water he finds a strange taste to it and then watches as a bird suddenly dies when it swoops down to drink some water. Lo-Zar realizes that the river has been poisoned and goes to the local village to warn the local natives not to drink the water.
Not far up river a man is pouring poison in the river in the hopes of driving natives and animals away from the area. He is spotted by Lo-Zar shortly after the man finishes dumping poison. Unaware of what the man was just doing, Lo-Zar warns him of the water and the man -- introducing himself as a hunter named Egres -- shows Lo-Zar that he has ample supplies of water to sustain himself. Lo-Zar is pulled back to the village when Pabai warns him that the poisoned waters have made the local crocodiles mad. Lo-Zar rushes off to help the locals fight off the crocs leaving the man to continue poisoning the waters. As he does so a newspaper clipping falls out of his pocket.
Unable to fight off the crocodiles, Lo-Zar orders the natives to set fire to the jungles that line the river to drive them back. As they are doing so, Lo-Zar finds the newspaper clipping and reads how it is about a communist agent named Serge who has gone missing in Moscow. As he examines the newspaper clipping ash from the fire ignites it. Lo-Zar puts it out and the way the soot had arranged on it is in the shape of a beard, making Lo-Zar realize that Egres is really Serge the communist agent.
Lo-Zar goes looking for Serge and finds him in the woods. The communist agent shoots at him, but Lo-Zar plays possum and when Serge gets close, Lo-Zar pounces on him. Their struggle sends Serge falling into the crocodile infested waters where he is eaten alive. Pambai arrives with a case of antidote for the poison he found in Serge's camp and they use it to eliminate the poison from the drinking water.
