Title: The Road to El Dorado The story is about two swindlers who get their hands on a map to the fabled city of gold, El Dorado, while pulling off some sort of scam. Their plan goes bad and the rogues end up lost at sea after several misfortunes. Oddly enough, they end up on the shores of El Dorado, and are worshipped by the natives for their foreign appearances. The story seems a bit rushed, but it is entertaining. And the animation simply breathtaking. The soundtrack is another winner for Elton John and the songs he performs add depth to the story.

John is also credited periodically narrating the story in song throughout the film. The film follows two con artists who, after winning the map to El Dorado , escape from Spain. After washing ashore in the New World , they use the map to lead them to the city of El Dorado, where its inhabitants mistake them for gods. In Spain , two con artists , Miguel and Tulio, win a map to the legendary City of Gold, El Dorado , in a rigged dice gamble though they ironically win the map fairly. Their boat reaches land, where Miguel begins to recognize landmarks from the map, leading them to a totem marker near a waterfall that Tulio believes is a dead end. As they prepare to leave, they encounter a native woman, Chel, being chased by guards. When the guards see Tulio and Miguel riding Altivo as depicted on the totem, they escort them and Chel to a secret entrance behind the falls, into El Dorado. They are brought to the city's elders, kindhearted Chief Tannabok and wicked high priest Tzekel-Kan.
