Jed Trigado is an extravagant lone outlaw, who only steals from the rich and hidesout in Bandera, Mexico, with the peaceful Somillo Indian tribe. His biggest enemy is Sheriff Franciscus, who is determined to avenge the defeat suffered at the hands of Jed who managed to escape from his prison after killing many men. Sonny is a great admirer of Jed and wants to work with him. The insistence of the girl, and the pressure of Franciscus, forces the reluctant Jed to accept her and after a few robberies taken together and they get married and then rob the minister. Franciscus, still in pursuit the outlaw couple demand from the sheriff a promise, in addition to a sizeable reward, amnesty for all their crimes. But this strategy is unsuccessful and they escape during a fire set in a barn which results in the blindness of Sheriff Franciscus. Now emboldened, Sonny and Jed present themselves at the banquet of Garcia Moreno and his wife, Linda, during which Jed kidnaps the lady and takes her to Bandera. Sonny becomes jealous of Linda and allows Sheriff Franciscus to enter Jed’s hideout. Jed is wounded by him and Sonny, nurses him back on his feet, and forces her husband to follow her in a state of subservience, treating him like a slave which is how Jed treated Sonny at the beginning of their relationship.
