A beautiful woman named Joanna has answered an ad to become the wife of Christopher Leiningen, a self-made coffee/cocoa plantation owner who has been in the jungles of South America since the age of 19. He's had no time, opportunity or appropriate female candidates to marry, but having accumulated enough wealth and fine things, he's now ready to share it with the perfect woman.

With her beauty and refinement, Joanna makes a definite impression on Leiningen, especially as she wears only a negligee to their first meeting! They are, after all, already married by proxy. But she seems too perfect and out of place in his primitive world, and he grows suspicious. He prods her about her past and discovers that she has been married before. The proud Leiningen refuses to have anything secondhand and decides to have the marriage annulled. But before he can send Joanna back to the States, he learns that "Marabunta," soldier ants that eat everything in their path, are headed toward his plantation.
As the killer ants trap Leiningen and Joanna together, it is Joanna's courage that wins Leiningen's admiration and ultimately his heart, but how can their newfound love survive the deadly Marabunta?
