The $8300 Bill Longley earned for driving a herd of cattle to Mesa isn't in his hands for thirty seconds before two gunmen rob take his money and the bank's assets as well, mortally wounding the bank president in the process. One robber is killed by Max Bowen almost immediately and Longley continues his pursuit of the remaining bandit into Mexico after the posse turns back. Nick Ahern, the man Longley has been trailing, convinces the Texan that he's not the murdering thief that hasn't been apprehended and Longley convinces him to return to Mesa to defend his reputation in the face of an angry lynch mob.
