"Renegade" Luke (Hill), a drifter and petty con artist, lives a free and easy life with no responsibility travelling around the Southwestern United States in his Jeep CJ Renegade with a chestnut colt named Joe Brown. This all comes to an end when his friend Moose (Norman Bowler) forces Luke to become the legal guardian of Moose's property and his son Matt (Ross Hill), while Moose is serving time in jail for a crime he claims he didn't commit. Both Luke and Matt are reluctant at the idea of accepting the arrangement first, but events quickly spin out of control when Lawson (Robert Vaughn) tries to get hold of the property, forcing them to rely on each other.
Filmed in English on location in Phoenix and Flagstaff. Cast and production crew were primarily American and Italian and include local notables such as Phoenix sculpture artist and custom trike builder Al Banks, then head of Arizona ABATE motorcycle activist group.
"Simple Man" and "Call Me The Breeze" by Lynyrd Skynyrd where chosen as main theme. Mauro Paoluzzi wrote and produced the original soundtrack, whilst Nicolette Larson also appeared on the release with the song "Let Me Be the One" from her 1988 album Shadows of Love.
