The opening scene of "Dead Man's Gold" is set in 1732, when pirate Captain Kyd and his first mate bury stolen treasure on an island. The greedy captain kills his mate, and the treasure remains undisturbed for 200 years. The film then fast-forwards to 1932, with prisoners at work breaking rocks in a quarry on a convict island. One of the convicts escapes at sundown, finds a boat and sets sail for Trinidad. He arrives at Sans Souci, on the north coast. Once ashore, he finds a bottle containing a map with directions to the buried treasure. He discovers the treasure, but does not realise that the ghost of the murdered pirate still jealously guards the treasure.
