The film opens with Gary Hamilton working on a chain gang in a quarry. We find out later he’s been here for 10 years. One thing has kept him alive and going and that is revenge on Acombar, the man responsible for his imprisonment. The Acombar gang stole gold from a confederate transport wagon and put the blame on Gary. With Gary in prison Acombar was free to live a life of comfort and even married Hamilton’s girlfriend, Maria. Hamilton is now released from prison and catches a stagecoach back to Thornton City. On the ride back he is accompanied by young Dick Acombar who is unaware of Hamilton and his relationship with his father. The time shortly comes for the senior Acombar to pay the price for his treachery. Even though Acombar knows Hamilton’s intentions, Gary uses the cover of darkness to disperse the gang one by one until the ultimate showdown between Gary and Acombar will settle the score.

  1. yes, it is.
    Hamilton is the power of earth - he's accompanied by fire (the building), water (the drops), earth (the cemetary) and air (the storm) to kill 'Cain' Acombar, who betrayed him, his mankind-brother.
    Great other religion-related themes (killing by the churchbell; the silent priest; the sage old man etc.)
