After being defrocked from the ministry for having an inappropriate relationship with a “very young Sunday school teacher.” Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon (Burton) is leading a bottom-of-the-barrel ladies’ bus tour of Mexico’s churches and religious sites.

Teenage seductress Charlotte (Sue Lyon, right after her starring role in Lolita) is determined to snag the interest of Shannon. Her aunt, Miss Fellowes (Hall), accuses Shannon of trying to seduce Charlotte and declares that she will ruin him.
