Storyline

Sheriff Ben Trask (Elliott Lindsey)is chasing a speeding car driven by Keema GReywolf (Cody Bearpaw) and his wife (Imagene Goodshot)when Keema's car has a blowout and crashes into a ravine. Keema blames the sheriff and in his anger draws Trask's gun, wounds the sheriff and kills his deputy. He escapes to Texas but is captured and held for extradition. The Basset brother, Leroy (John F. Goff), Wilbur (George 'Buck' Flower) and Melvin (James A. Ward), take Keema from Deputy Hector Chavez (Robert Padilla as Bob Padilla), and Keema releases Chavez with a message of revenge for Sheriff Trask. Keema and the Bassetts drive to a secluded mountain cabin, inhabited by Charlie Zornes (Dick Winslow), his wife Alma (Lilyan McBride), and their deaf-mute daughter, Twila ('Bobbi Shaw'), take the Zornes' camper and attempt to escape the roadblocks and posse headed by Trask.

Not sure who exactly to root for...
8 March 2021 | by thomas-kornSee all my reviews

None of the characters in this movie generate any empathy or sympathy . Im.pretty sure you're not supposed to..but its still confusing all the same. Still worth watching regardless
