The trouble in this Italian crime drama begins when five convicts and their leader escape from Elba and endeavor to rob the payroll office of an iron mine. The mine owner's son refuses to allow this. Unfortunately, the son's sister and her pals happen into the office and soon find themselves held hostage. Fortunately one of the girls escapes and runs for help. Unfortunately, she is caught by a criminal who tries to rape her. A struggle ensues and the girl shoots him in the arm. Engraged, the convict kills her. The loyal son, having no choice, gives the fugitives the money. The ring leader then takes the son's sister with him to the bank to sign the checks. The quick-thinking girl endorses the checks, but on the back of one, she rewrites a note to the police. They return to the mine only to find that another crook has killed the leader. A gunfight ensues and the robbers kill themselves. Soon the police arrive.
