In a series of near-death experiences, both hold their dignity and show great courage.
The plot begins as a fight with the Nazis started it triggered the race for the lost ark, in Nepal, when the tavern that Marion works at went into flames as a reaction to the brawl occurring. The Nazis, who are after the ark as well as Jones, tried to terminate the lives of Indiana and Marion. Yet, the majority of them got defeated when the duo used their incredible fighting skills to defeat the Nazis.
