 When a lawman, Jared Maddox from Bannock, arrives in Sabbath to arrest all the cattlemen whose wild celebration the year before resulted in the accidental death of an old man all hell breaks loose. The local Marshal is unwilling to help him go up against the largest cattleman in the region. The cattleman Vincent Bronson is not accustomed to being ordered around refuses to send the wanted men back to Bannock because of the hardships placed upon him and his men over the death of an old man. Maddox lives by the word of the law and tracks down each wanted man until he faces Bronson and his remaining men in face-off on the main street of Sabbath. In the end Maddox leaves with no one while Sabbath is left with a dozen new graves in it’s cemetery.
[An alternate version ends with Laura Shelby shooting Maddox in the back with a shotgun as he rides out of town.]
