This parody of B-films turns around on itself more than once to come up with twists that out-twist B-film plots. A producer (George Sluizer, also the director) hikes his cast and crew out to a remote desert location to start filming a saga called the Red Desert Penitentiary -- supposedly based on an autobiography by a certain James Gagan (Will Rose). The story tells of Gagan's 20-year imprisonment in a one-room cell in the desert (two over-sexed young women held him captive). The truth is that Gagan's 20-year imprisonment was spent in a very traditional penitentiary with the traditionally barred cells. And then reality takes another jump off the high-dive board and the star of the film, Dan McMan (played by country and western singer James Michael Taylor) is confused for the character (Gagan) he is playing.
