The Collogero's, a Sicilian family, emigrates to America and cultivates a vineyard in California. The Italian immigrant winemakers struggle to keep possession of land, family and traditions as a ruthless railroad mogul attempts to buy up all the land in order to bring a railroad into the region. When one family in particular resists all efforts, more deadly forces come into play. Sebastian's spirited son, Marco, is in love with Angelica, the daughter of a rival wine-grower's clan. Marco is not very concerned about the warfare about to erupt between the wine-growers and the railroad until Berrigan's thugs torture and kill Sebastian in front of his daughter Maria. Marco then gets his friends together and organizes a revolt against Berrigan and his railroad empire.
