Young aristocrat Anthony Raine returns home from India to find the farmers of Pembrokeshire protesting about the rates of a tollgate run by something called "The Whitman Turnpike Trust", headed by the drunken Lord Sarn (Peter O'Toole). So Raine dresses up as a woman, calls himself Rebecca, and leads the common people to victory over their masters.
