Gritty 1950s thriller in which an Oregon tavern owner gets caught between two competing gangs and drawn into the world of organised crime. Based loosely on real events - the mob influences surrounding the Teamsters' Union in 1950s America - the film follows the fortunes of pub owner George Madison (Edward Binns) who gets caught up in the struggle for control of the union. He initially feels he has little choice but to join the world of organised crime. However, when a mobster, Joe (Frank Gorshin), tries to rape his young daughter, Ruth (Carolyn Craig), George decides enough is enough and tries to extricate himself from their grasp.
