Synopsis

Chris Foster and Bert Pickett, shackled to a post after a brawl in the Mexican border town of Adonde, escape along with the other prisoners, outlaws led by Lavalle. Taking with them $12,000 worth of stolen securities, Chris and Bert flee the town, but Lavalle soon finds the two men. Chris is held hostage while Bert is sent to town to convert the securities into cash. Instead, he gives the securities to his former girl friend, Estelle, who is now a dancehall girl, and he returns empty-handed. Enraged, Lavalle allows Chris to go after Estelle and recover the money. Estelle, who reveals that Bert's gambling had reduced her to poverty, reluctantly turns the money over to Chris but follows him to Lavalle. In an attempt to save both his partner and Estelle as they arrive, Bert is killed by Lavalle. Chris and Estelle ride away unharmed; Lavalle tracks them back to Adonde, where Chris finally kills the outlaw, returns the securities, and looks forward to a new life with Estelle.
