Rural survivors of the oil wars are terrorised by roving military-style bandit Colonel Straker and his men, who travel and fight in a heavily armoured truck. For most, the choice is capitulate or die. Hunter, however, believes that there is always a way to fight back. Romantic interest takes the form of Corlie, whom we later discover is Straker's daughter. Hunter may be rather cool and undemonstrative for the most part, but when one of the more cowardly and underhanded farmers attempts to murder him and captures Corlie for delivery to Straker, it really gets his dander up.
