Ramon is on his way to the Barret ranch, to pay off a debt, when he is robbed by a group of bandits. Making it to Barrett's, he recognizes one of rancher’s henchmen as the leader of the men who robbed him, but instead of punishing the guilty man, Barrett orders his men to teach Ramon a lesson. In spite of the robbery and beating Ramon refuses to join his neighboring ranchers and farmers, who have decided to stand up against the tyrannical landowner. Things change when Ramon's father is killed and their ranch is burned down, he wants revenge. In a resulting battle with Barrett's henchmen, Ramon is wounded, but also manages to save the life of a famous gunman, Raza/Django who has come to his aid. The gunman becomes Ramon's mentor and teaches him everything he needs to know about the noble art of self-defense. Eventually Ramon is so quick on the draw that he is able to take his revenge on Barret, but he’ll also have to face his mentor in a final duel.
