A young woman returns to her father's dude ranch and to her boyfriend, the ranch foreman, just as a trio of gangsters, recently released from prison, arrives in the area. The gangsters, who are waiting for their leader to break out of prison and take them over the border, pressure the rancher, a former member of the gang, to hand over the $50,000 that the rancher had helped to steal prior to his cohorts' capture. The now-reformed rancher then fires the foreman when one of the gangsters, who is attracted to his daughter, threatens to tell the daughter about his criminal past if he refuses to dismiss his rival. In spite of his dismissal, the foreman meets secretly with the daughter, and the couple plans their elopement. The elopement coincides with the gang leader's jailbreak, and when the foreman shows up at the ranch, a gunfight between the father and the gangsters ensues. During the fight, the rancher is killed and his daughter is kidnapped by the lustful gangster, who also grabs the money. When the foreman is suspected of the rancher's murder, he flees, but eventually returns to rescue his girl friend and round up the gangsters.
