She manages to leave word for her friend Bill, who knows the country well. But when Bill cannot find a horse, his only available form of transportation is his roadster.

The plot is an old standby. A girl (Mell Shipman) is kidnapped by bandits and threatened with a Fate Worse Than Death. This standard plot serves as a framework for an astonishing extended off-road driving sequence. An ordinary 2-wheel-drive sedan is driven through progressively worse terrain including crawling over bolder strewn plains, along narrow ledges, and down crumbling sandhills. Basically, if you have seen it in a four-wheel-drive magazine, it is in this movie. No screaming heroin, Mell Shipman does about a third of the driving.
