Five Bavarian poachers find themselves in jail and dream of going to America, the land of freedom. In 1885 they are released and try to make their dream come true. They emigrate to America and land in the western town of Yanktown. But even there, they are treated by the people like dirt and perform menial work. Finally, they fall into the hands of Doc Holliday and his girlfriend Kate Elder, where they are exploited and used as henchmen for a bank robbery. Four of them are killed. There last words are: "Damn, this America!"
