Rocco Pedace  has settled in a small village in the West, where he directs and administers a saloon with a very personal justice. One day, near the village,  a stagecoach is attacked and its load of gold ends up in possession of Rocco’s granddaughter Cat, who he hides. A bounty hunter, a Sicilian mafioso, comes to town, on the trail of Cat, and enters into direct competition with Rocco. The two play a game of cards for the supremacy of the town. Defeated, Rocco must leave town. The bounty hunter finds Cat and prepares a gallows to hang the suspected thief. Rocco comes back to town and defeats the bounty hunter in a showdown. Cat meanwhile attempts to flee town with her boyfriend Buck and the gold but is stopped by Rocco.
