After the end of Civil War hostilities, Adam Sanchez returns west and teams up with Nelson Cook, the sheriff of Luther, Wyoming. Shortly afterwards, Deputy Sanchez and Sheriff Cook find themselves on both sides of the law when they corral a murderous bandit and then help themselves to his loot. But the bandit's gang shows up wanting vengeance. Violence begets violence when Sanchez and Cook engage in one showdown after another. As the gun smoke clears, a double-cross reignites the fuse. Sanchez attempts to untangle himself from this mess, but fresh trouble arrives in the form of Tess Buchanan, the woman who spurned him and now has come west with an agenda of her own.
