Knowing that the man won’t be given a fair trial for killing a white man, kind-hearted preacher Fred Smith (Neill) encourages him to flee into the wilderness with his wife. Meanwhile, rock-hard lawman Fletcher (Brown) gathers up a group and sets out to track down the outlaw and bring him to justice, but he won’t find any help from Fred.
