Short Summary (English)

The cowboys Joe and Beny are travelling the Wild West as an entertainment duo. As rodeo riders, pig catchers, musicians, and clowns they mostly live from hand to mouth. Nevertheless, they still have their dreams: Joe sees himself as a noble fighter for the good in the world, while Beny wants to become a successful clown. At least, they manage to impress little Susann, who sees her future father in Joe. But her mother Maria is far more pragmatic and favours the sinister, yet rich farmer Dave. When Susann wants to move Joe and Beny to prevent Maria from doing so, she involuntarily endangers them, because Dave claims that they have kidnapped the girl. On the run, they join a family of farmers who also fell victim to Dave. Together, they succeed to prevail over the rich rogue. Even Maria realizes that a good heart is far more important than a well-filled purse.

Short Summary (German)

Die beiden Cowboys Joe und Beny ziehen als Gesangsduo durch den wilden Westen - meist mit leeren Taschen. Joe ist ein guter Rodeoreiter und fasziniert die kleine Susann, die ihn gern zum Vater hätte. Maria, ihre Mutter, will aber den finsteren, reichen Farmer Dave heiraten. Susann möchte das verhindern und schleicht sich in den Wagen von Joe und Beny, um sie zum Eingreifen zu bewegen. Dave zeigt die beiden als Kidnapper an, und sie flüchten zu einer von diesem tyrannisierten Farmerfamilie - Gemeinsam schlagen sie Dave in die Flucht, und auch Maria hat inzwischen eingesehen, daß er der falsche Partner ist.

Short Summary (Other Languages)

Joe e Beny, due cowboy, attraversano il far west esibendosi come cantanti, per lo più squattrinati. Con i suoi spettacoli di Rodeo, Joe affascina la piccola Susann, che lo vorrebbe come padre. Sua madre Maria, invece, ha puntato gli occhi sul tenebroso ma ricco Dave. Per evitarlo, la bambina s'intrufola nel carro di Joe e Beny, per spronarli a intervenire. Dave denuncia i due cowboy per sequestro. I due trovano rifugio presso una famiglia tiranneggiata da Dave. Insieme metteranno Dave in fuga, facendo capire a Maria, che non era l'uomo giusto.
