Etta Place heads home after Butch and Sundance attempt to go straight. When the two arrive in town with some stolen houses, the Bolivian authorities are notified. Butch and Sundance are then caught in the middle of a shootout, with the Bolivian Police. After being wounded badly, Butch tells Sundance that if they survive the ordeal, they should travel to Australia. The Bolivian Army joins the fight. The film ends with Butch and Sundance running out into the open, and then the famous freeze frame shot just as they come out. Although multiple rifle and pistols bursts are heard, the fate of the two outlaws is left to the viewer.
