A beautiful Native American Sashena, her brother and two
friends ride their Harley's to a small desert town restaurant in search
of a mechanic to repair the girl's bike. The three men leave Sashena to
her repairs and go out on their bikes to retrieve a stolen buried treasure
in the mountains. Sashena discovers that the small town restaurant owner
plans to go after her brother and take the money.
Sashena befriends the cook and his sister asking them to help
warn her brother. The three go to rescue Sashena's brother only to be
followed by the town's corrupt Sheriff and his deputy who suspect the four
bikers are wanted for a casino robbery one year earlier.
