Cowboy Chad Santee leaves the cavalry in order to join his affluent brother, Jubal (Neville Brand, Stalag 17), who supposedly owns a large cattle ranch in Wyoming. On his way he encounters the beautiful Rose Fargo and after rescuing her from the unwanted advances of ‘Blackjack’, a hardened gambler, wins her heart. When the pair arrives, Chad is dismayed to discover that
Jubal and his partner Shawnee are actually outlaws making their fortune by rustling cattle. Jubal is thrilled to see his brother and tries to persuade him to join his gang, but Chad refuses to break the law and leaves to set up his own homestead with Rose by his side.
Jubal’s loyalty to his brother sets off a chain of events that will lead to both brothers being attacked. Who will survive? And how will two lone cowboys face the wrath of an entire gang of hardened outlaws?
