Pilot for the cult TV series about B.J. McKay, a guitar-playing independent trucker who travels with a fun-loving chimpanzee, named Bear, finds himself caught up with a bunch of young women trying to flee a white slaver who happens to be the local sheriff.
B.J. is tricked into returning to Orly County, where he's quickly arrested and imprisoned by the unscrupulous Sheriff Lobo. B.J. and his fellow falsely accused prisoners plot a jailbreak and a mad dash for the county line.
