After Jim Nesson and his wife and son are gunned down by members of the Slade gang, the villains torture and rape his daughters, Kathy and Sue, in order to force them to surrender a map showing the location of Nesson's secret mine. Starret, Kathy's fiancé, arrives on the scene in time to take revenge on the murderers, but Kathy dies in the gunfight. Burdened with guilt over Kathy's death, Starret sets out with Sue to find the mine. In the meantime, Slade dispatches more men to track them down. Ox, Nesson's partner, sets out with his "Hard Bunch" to meet Rafael, a bandido who has agreed to work the mine with his Mexicans. When the "Hard Bunch" lose their way, they rob a stagecoach and rape the female passengers. Once at their destination, they are slaughtered by the treacherous Rafael, who then rides to seize the mine for himself. After killing Slade's men with dynamite, Starret makes love with Sue. Then he takes on the Mexicans. Only the lovers survive the battle, and they head for Slade's office to settle the final score. Ignoring Slade's protests, Starret begins to tear through his desk, triggering a booby-trap that destroys friend and foe.
