Sensationalist black comedy centred on three go-go dancers driving through an American desert landscape in their sports cars. On encountering another sports car owner and his girlfriend, the leader of the women kills the man and his girlfriend is kidnapped. On their travels they learn of a crippled rancher and his two sons who are believed to be sitting on a hoard of money. With the intention of stealing the money, they converge on the isolated farmhouse to find the old man is as crooked as themselves and that one of the sons is backward. After the climactic showdown all the go-go dancers are dead, along with the old man and his backward son, with only the kidnapped girl and the other `good' son left alive.
