The gangster Augie Martello is riddled with bullets in an assassination attempt organized by Tony Ledo, a mob lieutenant. Mafia boss Johnny Lucero is returning after 10 years out of the country. Ledo intends to kill Lucero and take over.
The family of airstrip traffic controller Rod Balcom, including his daughters, is taken hostage as the gang members await Lucero's plane, with gunman Sam Galey assigned to stand guard over them. Ledo intends to have the entire family killed after Martello's death and his planned takeover, but Lucero gets the drop on him and shoots Ledo to death. Lucero is then captured by the police.
