In this actioner, a government agent must stop a South American arms-smuggling operation that has been providing firearms to a fanatical sect in Texas. Along the way he meets a wanderer who helps the undercover agent join the gang. The drifter begins impersonating a sailor and meets a prostitute whose lover receives the smuggled arms. The sailor manages to hook up with the head smuggler. When he finds the agent stabbed and dying beneath a dock, the sailor realizes their whole cover is about to be blown. Still he helps the gun runner move the arms ashore; he then kills the ring leader and his gang, and blows up their ship. When he gets back on shore he finds that the hooker and her boyfriend have been killed. The wounded agent is very impressed with the drifter's good work and offers him more, but the drifter is disgusted by it all and wanders away.
