Two members of a motorcycle club called The Skulls become involved in a fatal accident, and their leader, Cody, decrees that the group will avoid a confrontation with the police by moving to Hole-in-the-Wall, a West Coast haven for renegade cyclists. After breaking a fellow member out of the local jail, they head for the outlaw sanctuary. En route they stop off at a small town where a carnival is in progress. Although most of the townspeople are frightened by the leather-jacketed pack, a young girl named Marianne joins them for a party on the beach. But, under the influence of too much liquor, she fears she will be attacked and races hysterically back to town. The sheriff mistakenly assumes she has been raped and orders Cody jailed. Upon learning the truth, the sheriff releases Cody with the understanding that he and his group will leave immediately, but another cycle club has arrived to exact revenge. Quickly taking over the town, the two gangs ignore Cody's pleas and embark on a night of wholesale destruction. Realizing that his hope of finding a haven has been destroyed, Cody mounts his motorcycle and rides off alone.
