Neil and Sherry travel to a Greek island looking for Neil's sister, Madeline. The mayor, Nereus, denies knowing her but she is found with Frye, an American who is searching submerged caves for gold coins. He dynamites a bricked-up cave and 'something' is disturbed. Girls are mutilated while swimming. Madeline finds an ancient picture of a monster attacking a girl. She goes to placate it. Neil rescues her as Frye confronts it: he and the monster are killed in an explosion.
