The violent, gruesome world of international drug runners provides the basis for this grim, exploitation actioner. The story centers on the leader of a gang of dope peddlers who sail out to meet a Cuban boat loaded with heroin. The meeting occurs, and as a preamble, they smoke a little pot with the Cubans and then rob them after destroying their boat. As they race off across the water, they see a Coast Guard cutter heading toward the fire. Quickly the crooks stuff the narcotic in waterproof containers and toss it overboard with the intent of getting it later. While they do this a young couple, out for a romantic cruise witnesses them and calls the Coast Guard themselves. The film gets gory at this point as the desperate drug-dealers murder the Coast Guard officers and abduct the couple. They take them to their lair on the Seminole Indian reservation, and a gang member savages the girl. From there more murder and violence ensues as the desperados attempt to flee the FBI in the Everglades.
