School teacher Harriet (Fonda) goes to Mexico to ply her trade but is kidnapped by a revolutionary gang (led by Jimmy Smits). Completing the odd trio is Bierce (Peck), a dying author who wants to observe the world before he leaves it and, through the provovcation of Smits' revolutionary, go out with a heroic bang.
An astounding performance by Peck, who is manfully (there's very little of the fairer sex on show) assisted by Fonda and Smits.
