Father Michael Keogh, is sent by Rome to Quantana, a remote Mexican town which is under the control of a ruthless bandito named Anacleto Comanchi. Anacleto is educated and intelligent, but is completely against the teachings of the Catholic Church, but he finds in Keogh a man he strangely admires and with whom he can have intelligent conversation. However, he does not allow this to distract him from his goal: to get rid of the priest from Quantan and continue to his hold on the town at any cost.
