In Kingdom County, Vermont, during 1932 Quebec Bill Bonhomme (Kris Kristofferson) decides to carry on the family bootlegging business after his family's finances are endangered following a barn fire. Bill teams up with his son Wild Bill (Charlie McDermott), his brother-in-law Henry (Gary Farmer), and hired hand Rat (William Sanderson) to take a job running whiskey across the border from Canada. There is one flaw in the plan: the whiskey they are carrying was first stolen by hijacking criminal Carcajou (Lothaire Bluteau), and he follows in hot pursuit with his black beard and white hair flowing. The foursome puts on monks' apparel and even steals a motorboat and a train in their effort to escape from the smuggler Carcajou who wants to retrieve "his" whiskey.
