Four boxes of gold, the result of a robbery on the bank of El Paso by the bandit Carranza, are stolen by an Indian named Copper Face, who is jealous of the relationship between his wife Mary and Carranza. Following the Indian, in addition to Carranza and his gang, are two adventurers: Johnny and Owl. Luck seems to be favor the two adventurers, who track down Copper Face and get their hands on the treasure. The arrival of Carranza, however, forces them to leave the boxes of gold in the hands of bandits. Rather than surrender in the face of the superior numbers of the outlaws, Johnny and Owl are carry out a diabolical plan that allows them to wipe out the bandits and recover the gold. At this point, Owl, rather than sharing with Johnny the proceeds of the partnership, leaves with the four boxes and delivers them to the Sheriff of El Paso, thereby resulting in the release of his brother who was unjustly accused of complicity in the robbery. Johnny arrives in El Paso to avenge the insult by Owl, but willingly surrenders for his action, and the pair accept ten thousand dollars given by the bank as a reward for the recovery of gold.
