Mel (Charles Rocket) and Della (Priscilla Barnes) go on a hiking trip in an attempt to save their ailing marriage. Mel's attentions stray, however, when they meet up with attractive hiker Janice (Cynthia Geary). Along with guide Ned (Rodney A. Grant), they discover a crashed aeroplane with two dead bodies and a vast haul of gold. While they argue over what to do with this new-found wealth, they become the targets for Art (Anthony Michael Hall) and Vince (Courtney Gains), villains who want their gold back.
