Clint Cooper, who left his home town after being forced into a duel in which the sons of a powerful rancher were killed, decides to return and claim his right to his father's ranch. He also plans to resume his relationship with his girl friend, Helen Reed. On the way home, he learns that a large gang plans to rob the town bank. He arrives in town and finds that most of the townsmen have left on a cattle drive, but he agrees to help his long-time friend Scotty, the sheriff, defend the town against the gang. In the ensuing battle, many of the raiders are killed, as well as Scotty and most of the town's defenders. Only Clint, the minister, and an elderly man remain. These three manage to defeat the surviving raiders, and Clint stays on to become the new sheriff.
