  At Fort Hernandez, San Antonio, a group of Mexican villagers are betrayed by Confederate soldiers led by aristocratic officer George Bellow Ferguson and they are all massacred. After the massacre, a young boy, Requiescant, wanders in the desert but is rescued by Father Jeremy who is traveling with his wife and daughter in his wagon. The boy is raised like a son and when he grows-up; Requiescant is very close to his stepsister Princy. One day, the rebellious Princy leaves her family, and joins a traveling theater company. Requiescant promises his foster family he’ll find Princy and bring her back home. Along his journey, Requiescant proves that he has great skill with a six-gun. When he arrives in San Antonio, he finds that the town belongs to Ferguson. He goes to a saloon and finds that Princy has become a prostitute pimped by Ferguson's henchman, the gunslinger Dean Light. Requiescant asks Ferguson to let Princy go with him, but the boss of the town refuses to release her. When Requiescant learns that he is actually a Mexican and the fate of his family, he decides to help the priest Don Juan start an uprising against Ferguson.
