Upon arriving, Bill meets pretty Jeannie Thatcher (Angel), and begins his investigation. Bill is shocked to learn that his old childhood friend Fred Foster (Mason) is the leader of the vicious band of rebel raiders, who never leave a witness alive. Due to this, no one will transport the next gold shipment, and Bill steps up to the task, creating a secret route to ensure the shipment's safety. Fearing for Bill's safety, Jeannie gives Foster information on the secret route, not knowing Foster is the rebel leader. A final showdown between two old friends becomes inevitable. Smith Ballew's first film.
