In 1912 Utah, a teenaged Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. encounters grave robbers while exploring caves. The robbers uncover the golden crucifix of Francisco Vázquez de Coronado, which Indiana takes to ensure it is preserved in a museum. Indiana evades the pursuing robbers, but the sheriff forces Indiana to surrender the cross to their panama hat-wearing boss, as they claim Indiana stole the cross from its rightful owner. Impressed with his efforts, one of the robbers gifts his fedora to Indiana, telling him not to accept his loss. In 1938, Indiana confronts the boss on a ship during a storm, recovers the cross, and escapes before the vessel explodes, killing all aboard.
