The film takes place in Mexico, in a town called San Miguel on the Mexican-American border. The Man with No Name wanders into town during his travels and hears about the local drama.

The Rojo brothers and their powerful gang of outlaws seek to overthrow the governance of the town's sheriff and his family.
