Mexico at the time of the Revolution: John Mallory is an Irish terrorist who has fled to Mexico and works for a mining company as an explosives expert. Juan Miranda is a Mexican bandit and leader of his family gang. His lifetime dream is robbing the bank of Mesa Verde and he blackmails John into joining him. The Irishman plays a trick on the Mexican who finds himself involved in the revolution. But the trick is nastier than expected: Miranda's family is exterminated by the Governor's army.
