Ben Shockley, an alcoholic cop from Phoenix, is given the task to escort witness Augustina “Gus” Mally from Las Vegas. His superior, Commissioner Edgar A. Blakelock, says she is a “nothing witness” for a “nothing trial.” Mally protests that they are both set up to be killed in a hit, which a jaded Shockley doubts. Mally reveals herself to be a belligerent prostitute with mob ties and is in possession of incriminating information concerning a high figure in society.

Her suspicions are confirmed when the transport vehicle is bombed and Mally’s house is fired upon. Shockley and Mally are then pursued across the open country with no official assistance and with the police force regarding them as fugitives. They kidnap a local constable, who they then let go, as Mally knows there’ll be another hit. The constable is killed at the hands of several men armed with machine guns. They eventually run into a gang of bikers whom Shockley threatens with his revolver, then confiscates one of their motorcycles and takes off on it with Mally.
