Two college greenhorns arrive from Botson to visit their father. They find the unsettled and lawless west is not a place for unskilled youngsters. They also find out their father and the other ranchers are being blackmailed by a gang of outlaws. The youngsters take it upon themselves to find out whose behind this and put a stop to it. They are helped by “The Ace of Hearts” a gambler, ladies man and an expert pistolero. He teaches the young men to shoot and protects them from another hired gun Duke who has been hired to eliminate them. This tongue in cheek western is filmed with action and black humor. Garko plays his Sartana character even though his name has been changed in this film.
