Showgirl Rosie Valez (Divine; Pink Flamingos, Polyester) is making her way through the New Mexico desert to the small pioneer town of Chile Verde. But when she falls off her ass, accidentally spilling her gin in the process, Rosie is left stranded in the desert with nothing to drink. Left to fend for herself, she soon meets desperado Able Wood (Tab Hunter; Damn Yankees), and the two of them head west for Chile Verde. Upon arriving, Rosie discovers that she and Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan; My Big Fat Greek Wedding), the town Madam, each have a unique tattoo on their posteriors, which they discover might be a treasure map leading to the region's mythic gold cache...
