An innocent Mexican boy is sacrificed to a lynching mob by an ineffectual sheriff.

Almost by a chain reaction there is established a second set of circumstances inviting a lynching of the Mexican's brother. Only this time the sheriff recaptures a shred of human dignity and saves the brother, if not the town.moreless
