Bean returns as the courageous Major Richard Sharpe, his
latest mission to protect the identity of the master spy,
El Mirador. Sharpe captures Colonel Leroux who has been
sent by Napoleon to assassinate El Mirador but Leroux escapes.
In an ensuing battle, Sharpe's sword is destroyed and he
is left for dead. He is lovingly nursed back to health
by a beautiful young girl who has been rendered mute after
witnessing the slaughter of her companions. Armed with
a new sword forged by the faithful Sergeant Harper, Sharpe
continues his mission to protect the life of El Mirador
and seek retribution.
