Jeremiah Sanchez is a Protestant pastor who lives with his wife and four beautiful daughters in a village in northern Mexico. The daughters are harassed by some local boys, a fact that causes her parents seriousl concern about the continuing struggle to maintain and defend their honor. Every family dreams of leaving town, and one day Sanchez receives a letter informing them that they are the heirs to a house in Arizona. The house turns out to be a bordello and the neighboring Dalton brothers try to buy the house because they have discovered a rich vein of silver lies buried underneath.

  1. The film was made between 1979 and 1981 and was finished later on. Chuck Connors only appears in 12 of the 28 scenes that are in the film.
