Cat Stevens and Hutch Bessy exchange the gold of Bill San Antonio for cash with bank manager Herold. Herold, who joined forces with Bill San Antonio, hires Cacopoulos, who was sentenced to death, to kill the two of them. Cacopoulos, who has been in prison for 15 years and is now waiting for the gallows, as his friends had betrayed him at the time, seems to agree, but in reality he only wants revenge. Bank director Herold was one of his traitorous friends. After he named the whereabouts of the other two traitors, Paco and Drake, he gets Cacopoulos' revenge first. On the way to Paco, who left for Mexico, Cacopoulos robs Cat and Hutch. He takes the money from them, but does not kill them. Cat and Hutch then start the pursuit. After arriving in Mexico, they learn that Paco has a lot of debts with Cacopoulos. The Greek persuades the two of them to help him so that he can get revenge and the two of them get the money back. After an argument with Paco's small army, where Cat got help from Mexican mercenaries, Cacopoulos gets his revenge, but the mercenaries are now looking for the money. With a trick they can escape from the mercenaries at first, but the Greek leaves Hutch and Cat behind and flees alone. After Cat and Hutch managed to get rid of the mercenaries, they resume their pursuit. They know that Cacopoulos still has a score to settle with his former buddy Drake. Drake now operates a large casino, where the guests are robbed by fraudulent means. When Hutch and Cat arrive there, Cacopoulos has lost all the money. Cat and Hutch find out how to manipulate the games in the casino and decide to get Drake's money back in the same way. Together with street performer Thomas and Cacopoulos, they are heading to the casino, where the big showdown with Drake and his men finally takes place.

Ace High is, apart from Hannibal, the second film of the duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. It is the direct sequel of God forgives... I don't!.

One year later Boot Hill marks the end of the trilogy about the Western heroes Cat Stevens and Hutch Bessy.
