One punch from saddle tramp Trask kills a man, who caught Trask breaking into his house for grub. The fugitive signs on as a drover for trail boss Gil, hiding the only item he stole from the family's home - a tiny portrait of the victim's blind daughter Marion. Then the local sheriff catches up with the drive, asking Gil to take along young, pretty Marion, who's now all on her own. Trask's secretiveness troubles the other steer-men, but his hot temper and great strength keep the other cowpokes at bay. He is unwittingly assigned by Favor to drive Marion. They become close friends and Trask wants nothing to hurt Marion further. Written by David Stevens
