But the hunters become the hunted, as the sheriff and his deputy come upon them unexpectedly during one of their adventures. In an ambush one of the boys gets killed. The other two manage to stay undiscovered, but to keep their identities hidden they have to escape with their friends body before the killers can reach it. The noose around their necks tightens more and more as the sheriff and his henchman close in on them.
