It’s Gallantin, Missouri, in 1910 where the town is dominated by Mr. Morgan, with the excuse of maintaining order and threatened by his henchmen he claims the title of sheriff and large bribes in cash. In the same village, perpetually drunk, lives Franky James, brother of Jesse James: The former gunslinger, when he is in bad need of a bottle of whiskey bad, he tells his tale of his life in the bandit businesses performed with his brother. Kid, a child always accompanied by his beautiful and intelligent dog White Fang, an admirer of James, one day decideds to "redeem" Franky and choses him as his uncle. The population, conscious of the rebirth of Franky, gives him the office of sheriff and, inevitably, Morgan begins his war against the trio made up of the new sheriff, the lively boy and White Fang. Several adventures and bloodless struggles force the bandits to stop their enterprise and Franky, along with Kid, leaves Gallantin with the intention of going to find a nursing home for retired outlaws.
