Synopsis
A group of outcasts in the Florida Everglades, led by a half-breed Creole from Louisiana named "The Bull", attacks a nearby town and kidnaps the daughter of a local fruit grower, holding her for ransom. The Twister hears of this, visits Barra and guarantees the return of his daughter, then sets out on the trail to find her. But the hero is captured when a gang member holds his hand over the Twister's mouth, not allowing him to suck up the wind. The Bull, after hearing of Barra not paying the ransom, sets a fire near the town, planning to incinerate it. The Twister escapes and rescues the girl.
