They blow the safe to get at the $250,000 inside, but the job goes awry. And during their escape, Johnny and Roger kill a law-enforcement official.

At a diner, a sheriff, Carol's brother Charlie, spots the fugitives. In deference to his sister, Charlie agrees to give them a 10-minute head start before he contacts his fellow lawmen. But when emerging from a restroom, Roger doesn't realize who Charlie is and shoots him dead.

The police eventually surround the gang at a sawmill. During a shootout, Roger is killed. Johnny and Carol drive off in hail of bullets, and Carol is also killed. Johnny drives her body back to her mother and son.
