In China, Dr. Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) traded with the boss of the Shanghai gangster. After getting Nurhachi’s ashes, the other party betrayed his faith and wanted to kill Jones. At a critical moment, Douding (Jonathan Ke Quan), a witty ghost, rescues Dr. Jones and Willie (Kate Capshaw), a showgirl who got involved for no reason.
Because of the crash of the plane the three people were on, after jumping off the plane, they drifted to a village in India in a rubber boat. The river here is dry, the crops are destroyed, the famine is rampant, and the people are in dire straits. The local people blamed it on the evildoers of Pangao Palace, and regarded the “falling from the sky” Jones and his party as the incarnation of gods. They asked Jones to help them get back the kidnapped holy stone and all the children.
The magic palace is really full of weirdness. The ruler is a little boy, and the nobles eat leeches, giant pythons, beetles, and monkey brains. This battle is destined to be extremely difficult!
