After graduating from medical school in San Francisco, the young George Benton returns home to the farm of his brother Jonatham to marry Lorry, his girlfriend of five years. Sometime later the brothers Fargas, disappointed gold miners, attack the farm to rob and kill all the family members of George (only a brother and a nephew survive). Assuming that the criminals responsible for the attack are Ralph Barry and his two accomplices, George is determined to avenge the deaths and pursues the three alleged killers of which only Ralph escapes. Having discovered that one of the surviving Bentons knows who the real culprits are, the Fargas brothers force Barry to join them and attack the farm to eliminate the dangerous witness. George, now aware of the truth (being informed by a prostitute), rejects their assault, killing both Ralph and Fargas. The third, Rod, flees, but is captured by George who turns him over to the sheriff to face justice.
