The fil tells the story of  Mash Flannigan who dominates, a small town in the West, with his thugs who kill anyone who tries to rebel against his abuse. In one of the many shootings, he injures Sam Wallash, and kills his friend. Young Sam swears to avenge him, and aided by Margie and her father, he is able to recover from his wounds and soon regains his strength. Sam then goes in search of the killers. He once again, is savagely beaten by the men of Donovan in the local saloon. Meanwhile Flannigan and his thugs continue their bullying and killings.
