Brutal crime drama from Italian director Umberto Lenzi, in which a petty crook decides to act out his dream of becoming one of the most feared criminals in Italy. Small-time miscreant Guilio Sacchi (Tomas Milian) has scraped by on spare change for most of his life, but one day decides he needs to make a drastic change. When he discovers his girlfriend Iona (Anita Strindberg) is working for a wealthy businessman, he gathers together some friends in order to kidnap the man's daughter (Laura Belli) for ransom. All goes according to Gulio's plan at first, but it's not long before his sadistic nature reveals itself and the gang descends into violent paranoia. Henry Silva plays the tough cop on the kidnappers' trail.
