This film chronicles a murder mystery as strange and alluring as the Galalpagos archipelago itself. In 1929, Berlin doctor Friedrich Ritter and his mistress flee conventional society to start a new life on uninhabited Floreana Island. But after the international press sensationalizes the exploits of the "Galapagos' Adam and Eve" others flock there-including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness with her two lovers. The doctor's dreams of a utopian paradise are dashed and tensions rise between the residents of the island. Then one day, the baroness and one of her lovers disappear.
