The Born Losers
A small California town is overrun by a dangerous pack of bikers. Vicky (Elizabeth James) is raped, along with a couple of teenage girls, but she and the other girls are too scared to press charges. However, a mysterious, brave stranger named Billy Jack (Tom Laughlin) may convince her and the town to stand up against the invaders.

Billy Jack
Billy Jack, a half-white/half-Native American ex-Green Beret and martial arts expert, runs a progressive school for misfits and runaways on his desert reservation with his special friend Jean (Delores Taylor). When the local deputy's daughter seeks shelter at the school after getting pregnant, she becomes the catalyst for a climactic confrontation between Billy Jack and the local townspeople, all led by sinister landowner Posner (David Roya).

The Trial of Billy Jack
After the events seen in Billy Jack, Billy Jack has been released from prison and wants to develop his ceremonial visions while protecting his school. However, in his absence, tensions between the townspeople and the students has skyrocketed, exacerbated when Posner's brother (Riley Hill) mounts a crooked deal to steal land from the reservation. Things come to a head when Billy Jack confronts Posner and his high-powered political friends and the altercation escalates until the students could face the final fight of their lives.

Billy Jack Goes to Washington
When a U.S. senator dies, the state's governor (Richard Gautier) is required to select a replacement until the next election. He appoints Billy Jack, figuring that the state's other senator, Paine (E.G. Marshall, Nixon), can keep him in line. Unfortunately, Billy Jack proves far too independent for the state's power brokers and they launch a bitter, brutal political attack on him.

As a bonus, each film features a commentary track from Laughlin and his wife and collaborator, Delores Taylor, in which they discuss the production of their films and the challenges of independent movie making.
