Manuel Paquito and Tom Warner are rivals for the love of Jean Dixon. Knowing that Paquito is an outlaw, Jean favors Warner. In difficulties with the cattlemen, Tom Warner is captured by them one night; they peg him out on the desert to starve him to surrender. Paquito finds Warner and tortures him. Jean comes upon the scene, and is forced by Paquito to promise to marry him, or see her lover killed. She reluctantly chooses the former. Dixon, Jean's father, returns to Warner, who tells him what has happened. Together, they summon the other cattlemen and start to run down the Mexican. Paquito and Jean reach the nearest village and ride to the house of a clergyman. However, Tom and Dixon ride up in time to prevent the marriage. After a revolver duel, the Mexican is captured and is forced to stand by and see the marriage of his rival to Jean.
