Criminal H.I. “Hi” McDonough (Cage) meets Edwina “Ed” (Hunter) a police officer, when she is taking his mugshot on one of his many trips to prison where she subsequently also takes his mugshots. When Hi discovers that Ed’s fiancée broke off their engagement he proposes to her.

After a short period of marital bliss, living in a mobile home with Hi working at a machine shop, Ed decides she needs a child. After discovering she cannot have children and, together, they discover they do not qualify for adoption because of Hi’s criminal record, they decide that they should kidnap one of the “Arizona Quints,” five sons born to Nathan Arizona, a local furniture magnate.
