On the heads of the Prez brothers, a band of brigands, hang various size rewards. With the exception of Juanito, who unlike the others, usually travels unarmed and lets the others do his bullying. When one of the brothers forces a girl to marry him Johnny Oro, a famous bounty hunter, interrupts the ceremony and kills him in a legitimate duel. Juanito, he hires Sebastian, a rebellious Apache to lay siege to the village where Johnny has taken refuge threatening the total destruction of the town for offering hospitality to his enemy. But Bill Norton, the sheriff of the town, will stay until the end being loyal to his principles, despite the cowardly citizens' proposals led by the devious merchant Gilmar alienates the population, and has Johnny Oro imprisoned for illegal possession of weapons. The sheriff prepares to defend the town backed only by an old drunk and his wife Joan. The assault begins with a horde of Apaches and bandits. Juanito becomes more insistent on his demands for Oro, despite significant losses, Bill accepts the proposal of Oro, and places a bounty on the last of Perez, while freeing the prisoner. Johnny who had had the foresight to place some dynamite in a strategic position vanquishes the Apaches and bandits, and faces Juanito and kills him.
