Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Flying over the mountains of Asia, Indiana Jones, his sidekick Short Round, and nightclub singer Willie Scott are forced to jump out of the plane using an inflatable rubber raft as a parachute. They soon stumble across a poor village with no children and the community's leader hires Indiana to retrieve the village's sacred stone which was stolen by their neighbors.
Though appearing civilized at first, the temple, and the Maharajah himself, turn out to be filled with evil. The dark caverns in the temple contain sacrificial rooms where followers scream in glory as their master rips the heart from men and lowers them into a burning pit of fire.
Indiana and Willie's romance is interrupted by henchmen who want nothing more than to turn Indiana into a follower, Short into one of the hundreds of child slaves, and Willie into a sacrificial woman. They almost succeed. Indiana is turned to their evil plots at one point but Short, escaping from the slave laborers and freeing the other children, saves the day, which ultimately allows Indiana to save Willie just before she is burned to death.
From there on in, it's a life and death struggle to survive, escaping from the wicked ruler intent on nothing more than getting his precious stones back and ripping out Indiana's heart.
