The gangster trio Maureen, Kenny and Monte have come up with a cute plan. A bag full of emeralds is hidden in the stomach of Infidel, a thoroughbred racehorse. Thus "prepared" they cross the border from Mexico to Arizona. Diamond smuggling of the third kind. The vet who performs the operation is a potentially dangerous witness. No problem for Kenny: Blop! What a trigger-happy guy this Kenny is. He has finished off 23 people as yet, without giving them even the smallest chance to say their last prayer. Back in the USA, the three have planned to reunite, but Monte has disappeared - and with him the precious thoroughbred. Kenny is out for blood. Maureen is deeply disappointed, as she was expecting to marry Monte. But what about Monte's twelve year old daughter, somewhere in a boarding school in the mountains? Let's get hold of her! However, the girl, Rosemary, is already with her father Monte, who has holed up with his brother Buck and his sister-in-law Laura in Montana. Now the (criminal) events rush one another. And the "sad" end of the story: an old truth asserts itself once again. While the bad guys lose out, the good guys - Buck & Laura - hilarioulsy divide the spoils - a "precious" horse for example - among each other...
