It is written that the son of Thorn will put an end to the tragic dynasty of the Spider. Thus, the Grand Priest of The Spider orders the slaughter of the newborn son. However, the old Griba hides the newborn safe from the slaughter, and he grows up strong and brave with his adoptive parents.
Miles O’Keeffe (Tarzan The Ape Man) is Ator, son of Thorn. He falls in love with Sunya (Ritza Brown), whom he believes to be his sister. When finally the truth is revealed that Ator was adopted, he gains the approval for the marriage. But on their wedding day, the Black Knights, guards of the Grand Priest, begin a massacre in Ator’s village as they search for old Griba and they kidnap Sunya, the bride. Ator must then begin his long, perilous journey towards the Temple of the Spider. On his way he learns the secrets of martial arts and befriends Roon (Sabrina Siani), a thief Amazon who joins Ator on the journey to the temple. Together they conquer danger after danger.
