Story

John Mallory (Coburn), an IRA explosives specialist joins the Mexican bandit Juan (Steiger) in his quest to rob the bank of Mesa Verde. What Juan thinks is a nice joint venture to get rich, quickly turns out to become an operation for the revulutionary cause, and the two are being drawn into a fight against the Mexican army, treason and violence, the fight bearing painful similarities to Mallory's IRA past. The two form an unlikely but true friendship that is tested by a fight that is anything but simple.
