In a comic take-off of “God Forgives... I' Don't”, two small time horse thieves steal a golden chariot which was built by the bandit El Diablo from gold stolen from the army. Pretending to be dead to throw the thieves off, two of his henchmen Angel Face and Lightning are convinced El Diablo has deposited the gold in a bank. They force Franco and Cicio to help them rob the bank but find the safe empty. The two horse thieves are accused of hiding the gold and when El Diablo turns up alive our heroes are forced to face all three of the outlaws. Just in time the soldiers arrive and arrest El Diablo while Angel Face and Lightning escape. The gold is returned and Franco and Ciccio receive the rewards for the wanted outlaws.
