Hired gun Doug Sadler rides into a small Western town and immediately
provokes the local sheriff, Carl Brandon, by tormenting a simpleminded
local named Sampson. Brandon is further provoked by a visit from city
attorney Hardy, who announces that the town council is charging local
rancher Ralph Carpenter with violations of morality for living with an
Indian girl. Brandon, who is in love with Carpenter's estranged wife
Teresa, realizes that there is something sinister behind both these
events, but he is unsuccessful in preventing calamity from erupting.
Eventually he must stand against his entire town in order to protect it and
the law he represents.
