In the town of Silver Springs, a crooked lawyer Ken Denton, a wolf in sheep's clothes, is following his plans for revenge. He aims to ruin the old rancher Martin, who once killed his father, and then plans to take over the Freight Company. Denton appoints Martin's lost son Gringo, now a drifting soldier of fortune as the leader of a gang in order to either drive the rancher off his property or kill him. When the sheriff is killed Denton frames Martin’s son to make it look like he committed the crime. The governor sends Mace Carson to Silver Springs to replace the sheriff and restore law and order.
