Mexican invasion of the United States!

Having lost his influence and on the way to be executed in Mexico City, the once mighty Mexican revolutionary, Pancho Villa, is saved at the last minute by his remaining men and his dedicated right hand, Scotty.

As he encounters every obstacles with MacDermott (Luis Davila); besides, there meets his beautiful spouse (Anne Francis).
