A band of boisterous paroled female prisoners accompany U.S. Army engineers on an undercover map-making assignment into or near Mexican territory. The assignment also includes the smuggling of weapons into Texas.[citation needed] Their cover story is that the group consists of settlers; each of the women is paired with one of the engineers to appear to be his wife.
