Tom Horn tries to steal back $200 he lost in a poker game. He is thrown into a jail cell with outlaw William Morgan, whose gang members Red, Curly and Mingo break them out. Tom wins their trust by robbing a Colorado mining company. He is recognized by Julie, the company's bookkeeper, but she is attracted to him. The gang rides to Tombstone, Arizona, unhappy that Tom has married Julie and brought her along. A posse shoots Curly, who informs on the whereabouts of the rest. Red is murdered by Mingo, not wanting to split the loot. Tom is able to kill both Mingo and Morgan, but can't outdraw the law.
