Jim Hardie is taking Lou Reese in for robbery. However, not all goes as planned. Normalie Hall once was nearly hanged because of betrayal by Reese, and Hall wants to take Reese away from Jim and hang him in revenge. Jim can't give his prisoner up, so he and Reese move into the mountains to a town where Reese is known and revered for heroism in an Indian attack. Jim keeps a low profile, not revealing his identity as a Wells Fargo agent in a town favorable to Reese. Hall and his men block the pass and pin Jim down. Hall comes to Reese by night with a deal to let him go if Reese betrays Jim Hardie, whom Hall wants to use in a ploy against Wells Fargo itself. In a last minute switch, though, Reese saves Hardie and agrees to give Jim no more trouble.
