Jerry Welbach has two problems: his mob boss has ordered him to go to Mexico to retrieve a priceless antique pistol named The Mexican, and his girlfriend has given him an ultimatum to give up his mob connections. Deciding that an angry girlfriend is better than being dead, Jerry goes to Mexico to retrieve the weapon. He locates it easily, but getting it back proves difficult because the gun is cursed. Dubious of the curse at first, Jerry begins to believe in it when he discovers that his girlfriend is being held by a mob hit man to ensure his return with the gun.
