Based on the true story of the Portola Expedition of 1769. Captain Portola and his men discovered San Francisco Bay in November of that year. This is the story of the making and forging of California.
The Spaniards in Mexico heard rumours of the "Seven Cities of Gold". The stories may have their root in an earlier Portuguese legend about seven cities founded on the island of Antillia by a Catholic expedition in the 8th century . The later Spanish tales were largely caused by reports given by the four shipwrecked survivors of the failed Narváez expedition, which included Álvar Núñez Cabeza De Vaca .
This is a semi-lavish costume epic based on historic facts about conquistadors and missionaries in search for fabled Indian treasure in Western US, California.
