Brothers Joe and Paul Fabrini own a small but solid transportation company in California. They mainly transport the farmers' fruit to the markets in Los Angeles at night. Paul and Joe face corrupt traders and fierce competition. An overworked Paul loses control one night and finds himself missing an arm. Paul looks for another job at the urging of his always overprotective wife Pearl. Joe, who has an on-again, off-again relationship with waitress Cassie Hartley, has an affair with the irresistible Lana, the wife of Ed Carlsen, the slick manager of a trucking organization. Lana kills Ed and she makes it look like an accident. Joe agrees to Lana's offer to take over her husband's share of the trucker organization. However, Joe shouldn't have made this decision...
