Keoma, a half-breed Indian, returns to his native country after having fought in the Civil War. Unfortunately the situation is much changed: the town is in the hands of the evil Caldwell and everyone is against him except his stepfather and an old Negro friend. With the help of both the man tries to return things as they were before his departure, but will have to face-off with his stepbrothers.
