Jim Meade is a former Army man who has an imaginive robbery plan. Boarding an airliner under the name "D.B. Cooper," Meade hijacks the plane, holds it for $200,000 in ransom, and then parachutes into the woods near where his wife lives. Having recently separated, the couple reconcile and start to head for the Mexican border with the money. But they have two of Jim's old Army buddies following them. His former sergeant has become an insurance investigator, and suspects him of the crime, as does his buddy Remson who wants to get the money for himself.
