When Matt Train and his father are framed for murder by burgeoning town boss Clegg Ralston, they are branded outlaws. They are forced to flee their home and take refuge deep in the mountains. Intent on possessing their land at any price, Ralston designs to either kill the Trains or drive them from the Territory. Ralston offers a bounty on the Trains, using money, fear, and intimidation against the local townsmen to orchestrate their ruin. As the Trains struggle to clear their family name, their plight is complicated by the arrival of Della Dorn, a beautiful young woman who is rescued from Apaches by Matt. Matt's growing feelings for Della plunge the Trains deeper into peril when Lute Kagen, a ruthless gunman hired by Ralston, initiates a devious plan to lure the Trains out of hiding.
