Heirs of land in the town of Trinity, the two stepbrothers Jesse and Lester start off together to take possession of their claim. During the trip they already have different attitudes: Jesse, quickly uses his gun and kills four bandits who try and rob them, the second, Lester a Mormon preacher of moderation and non-violence, scolds Lester harshly. With the proceeds from the sale of the land, Lester would like to build a church, Jesse wants to build a house of pleasure. Nevertheless, the two, along with a friendly lawyer, reach Trinity, but are welcomed by bandits who put them to flight. The attempt to establish a mine in the area where gold has been discovered, proves to be slow and difficult, and this leads to Jesse splitting with Lester. After various adventures and misadventures, Jesse is able to open, along with Elena (a prostitute) and with other friends, his house of pleasure. Business is booming, until Lester arrives, who Jesse had left in the care of a physician. Lester’s arrival causes a riot and a fire. Again the brothers must deal with a band of bullies, who attempt to kill Lester. To heal one and with the gratitude of the other, the two brothers eventually founds Lester’s church.
