“Some guy with a strange face is looking for you to kill you.”

Chris Mitchum (son of legendary actor Robert Mitchum) is Ricco Avasi; a fresh from prison parolee who comes home to find out that his gangster father has been whacked and his woman Rosa (Marisa Longo) is with another man.  The sonofabitch behind it all is Don Vito (Arthur Kennedy) and he has no idea the kind of hell he has brought on himself by messing with the MEAN MACHINE. So full of vengeance that it looks like he is sleepwalking, Ricco travels to Rome to find the bastards that screwed up his life. He eventually teams up with an old counterfeiter and his often-naked daughter (Barbara Bouchet) to exact his revenge in this Italian/Spanish co-production.
