A gunfighter, Kip Tanner, is ambushed by three men who believe Kip's brother Gene swindled their boss, rancher Seth Heinline. A last-minute arrival by Marshal Wilkinson results in the men riding off and Kip coming to town, where he intends to find out what happened to Gene.
Kip concludes that Seth's men framed Gene, which concerns Seth's daughter Alice Heinline, who wanted Gene to marry her. Her own brother Jud makes an attempt on Kip's life, but hotel desk clerk Raquel Tareda comes to his rescue because she knows Gene to be innocent. Seth shoots at the wrong man, accidentally killing his own son instead of Kip, and ends up shot himself in a final gunfight.
