Tom Solo (Kent McCord) is a greedy archeologist who has a bored, beautiful wife, Vanessa (Teri Copley). An old Native American woman brings them the statue of a Native American rain god, and tells them that the "rain dance" would make it rain so long as the Indians sacrificed a person to the rain god. But in time, the tribe's materialistic greed caused the rain god to turn everything to stone. She warns the two against selling artifacts for profit, and departs. The Solos scoff at her prophecy, an attitude the rain god doesn't like.
