Former gunfighter Minnesota Clay, sentenced to 20 years of hard labor for a crime he did not commit, escapes from prison and makes his way to Mesa Encantada. The small Mexican town is ruled by two warring gangs; one is headed by Ortiz, and the other by Fox, the man who withheld information which could have proven Clay's innocence. Ortiz's mistress, Estella, offers to kill her lover and turn his gang over to Clay; when her proposal is rejected, she arranges for Clay to be captured by Fox. She then slays Ortiz and tries to win Clay's love by offering to help him kill Fox, but her treachery is discovered, and she is murdered by Fox, who sets out to kill Clay. Unknown to all, Clay is blind, and to further his chances, he hides out in a basement until it is dark. When the two men meet, Clay utilizes sound to trap and shoot down his opponent, although he himself is mortally wounded.
