In Revolution-torn 1913 Mexico, Juan Miranda, a Mexican outlaw leading a bandit family, robs a coach of wealthy men and rapes a female passenger who insulted him. Passing by on a motorcycle is Sean H. Mallory, an early Irish Republican explosives expert, who is working in Mexico as a silver prospector. Juan, who mistakenly thinks Sean’s name is ‘John’ and keeps calling him John thereafter discovering his skill with dynamite and nitroglycerin, asks ‘John’ to help him rob the Mesa Verde National Bank. After John initially refuses, Juan frames him for the murder of his employer and several soldiers, making him a wanted criminal and offering to “protect” him in exchange for his help. John reluctantly agrees to help Juan rob the bank, but escapes on the way to Mesa Verde.

Arriving in the city before Juan, John makes contact with Mexican revolutionaries led by physician Dr. Villega and agrees to use his explosives in their service. When Juan arrives, John inducts him into the revolutionaries’ ranks. The bank is hit as part of an orchestrated attack on the Mexican army. Juan, interested only in the bank’s money, is shocked to find that it has no funds and is instead being used by the army as a political prison. John, Juan and his family end up freeing hundreds of prisoners, inadvertently (and against his wishes) causing Juan to become a “great, grand, glorious hero of the revolution.”
