Stockwell plays a half-Navajo man who is running from police for accidentally running a car off the road with his motorcycle. Along the way he picks up Stich, a rebellious teenager fleeing from her shrewish mother, and Susman, a retarded teen devoted to Stockwell. The cross-country spree involves a robbery in which Susman accidentally kills the owner. The three hide out in a church, where Susman performs a mock wedding ceremony for Stockwell and Stich. Things get worse when Susman goes into town for food and, when provoked by a jealous husband, guns down a half-dozen people. Thinking they can fly his father's plane to South America, Stockwell takes his pals back to the reservation, only to find out that his father, who is disappointed that his son has rejected the Indian way of life, no longer owns the plane. The melodrama ends when the three renegades decide to leave the reservation and are gunned down by surrounding police.
