In the immediate aftermath of the American Civil War, Jeff Donovan's outlaw gang disguised as soldiers of both the Confederacy and the Union rob banks using a cannon concealed in a wagon. A man about town by the name of Holy Water Joe, to differentiate between his father, Fire Water Joe finds himself penniless when all his savings are gone due to a bank robbery by the Donovan gang. Joe finds an opportunity to recoup some of his losses when he captures a deserter from the gang and sells him to Donovan that creates double dealing and gunplay.
