Middleton is mistaken for a holdup man and jailed. He breaks out, catches up with the real crooks, and gets the loot away from them. Instead of returning the money and clearing his name, he marries Wyatt, and they use the money to build a city in the desert. Of course, after they establish
themselves as pillars of the community, one of the original crooks, Bromberg, shows up to do some blackmailing. Wyatt ends up killing him, and the nightmare ends.
