In a small country town, the retarded Bubba Ritter has the mentality of a child and is the best friend of a young local girl. When the girl trespasses the yard of a house and is attacked by a dog, he saves her, but is wrongly accused of killing her by her mother. The postman Otis P. Hazelrigg joins three other vigilantes' friends of him and the group executes the poor man, who was disguised as a scarecrow in a cornfield. They forge some evidences that Bubba had attacked them, and they go to a trial but they are declared not guilty. They are released, but justice comes from the grave and the men are mysteriously killed, one by one, in the revenge of the scarecrow.
