William Friedkin directs this tale based on the French suspense film The Wages of Fear. Four men (Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Amidou and Francisco Rabal), each from a different country, are exiled to a South American town, where they're approached by an American company with a tempting proposition: transport the volatile substance nitroglycerin over perilous terrain for a healthy wage and a promise of legal citizenship.
