Tige McCoy and his friends are riding in search of excitement when they learn that Tige's father, Clint, has come back to his hometown, pursued by the ruthless Dawson gang. Years ago, Clint had left town because of his wife, Sara's, unfaithfulness, leaving her with the infant, Tige. Believing his mother dead and hating his father for deserting them, Tige returns to watch the Dawsons confront his father. Tige and his gang take over the town and encounter Sara, who is now the local saloonkeeper, but she is unrecognized by her son. Tige finally faces Clint in a showdown but is outsmarted and humiliated by his father. When the Dawson gang finally arrives, Tige refuses to help Clint; Sara grabs a gun, but she is shot. Before dying, however, she tells Tige the truth about her separation from Clint, and he and his friends save his father from the outlaws.
