Synopsis

Angel, a renegade member of the Devil's Advocates motorcycle gang, exposes the lurid story of the gang in a national magazine and sets out on his bike with his girl friend Lauri to collect his $10,000 fee, which has been deposited in a San Francisco bank. With his former buddies in murderous pursuit, Angel outwits the gang by driving through a railroad freight yard and finding refuge at a northern California sheep ranch. Dan Felton, the owner of the ranch and a former cyclist himself, gives Angel a job and rents him a shack, which Lauri converts into a comfortable home. As four of the Advocates continue to search for him, Angel gradually comes to accept his new, peaceful life with Lauri. Eventually, Dan's teenaged daughter, Meg, meets the four Advocates at a roadhouse and tells them about the young man with a beautiful motorcycle living on her father's ranch. Now certain of Angel's whereabouts, the gang brutally gang-rapes Meg and then rides to the shack and attacks Lauri. When Angel appears, a fierce battle ensues between the four gang members on bikes and Angel on foot. Dan, who has mistakenly assumed that Angel was responsible for the assault on Meg, arrives on the scene, quickly sizes up the situation, and uses his shotgun to chase the hoodlums away, leaving Angel and Lauri free to start a new life.
