In a fit of anger, a hulky dumb gangster chops off the skillful hands of a highly popular bongo player, who works for his boss. However, the hands turn out to be alive and kind of deadly, and the gangster must find them or else his boss will have his head. A sensual local voodoo queen helps him in his quest, as well as with something more personal. Meanwhile, the hands hook up with a prostitute, who turns deadly when she finds out after the fact that they have no money. The ending is everything but predictable.
