After a stint in prison for his first robbery attempt, during which he is badly abused, Daniel Morgan (Dennis Hopper) swears revenge on those who ruined his life. Like the outlaws of the American West, Morgan, aided by an aborigine sidekick named Billy (David Gulpilil), becomes a folk hero among the Australian people, while those in power begin to worry about the trouble he is stirring up. Soon Mad Dog Morgan is Public Enemy No. 1, but neither he nor Billy intends to go down easily.
