When the workers attempt to sell their gold for cash, they are cheated by Redfield's bankers. Some of the peasants try to escape to Tucson to sell their gold there, but are killed by bandits lurking in the mountains. These bandits are also under the employ of Redfield. Roy, who hides a mysterious agenda, eventually goes to the town run by the unscrupulous trio to settle accounts in regards to his friend, Emiliano. Emiliano was the former mine owner and was a man of some repute. Pedro lived on the grounds of his mansion as did Jessica, his daughter. Jessica is now used for sex by Lawrence and Newman, Redfield's henchmen.
