A malicious motorcycle gang harasses the residents of a small California town, intimidating most residents to not report them to the police. Among the gang's crimes is the rape of four young women. As the gang attempts to threaten the women into not testifying at the indictment hearing, one of the women, Vicki, comes under the protection of Billy Jack, who has also had several altercations with the gang. The gang escalates their pressure on both Vicki and Billy Jack to keep her out of the courtroom. Written by

This movie, something of a prequel to Billy Jack, starts off looking like a typical cheap biker film of the era, but somehow despite the poor performances and non-existent plot, manages to entertain on some levels. Billy Jack, the Native American protagonist, defends an ungrateful small town from local biker hoodlums. Since Billy is the closest thing resembling a sympathetic character in the film, other than a girl victimized by the bikers, the viewer accepts his tough-guy approach to dealing with the biker gang. All the confrontations lead to a somewhat tense climax at a gang pad, where Billy finally manifests his final violent justice. This movie tries to portray Billy as a lone hope hero in a world gone wrong where few intervene on behalf of their fellow human being, and it comes off as being ridiculous in some ways, however despite that fact and Tom Loughlin's lacklustre performance as Billy, the character still exudes the quiet confidence of a western or kung-fu hero. By virtue of this, the film is watchable.
