A tightly made western with vengeance as the overriding theme. Set at the Texas border, a secret service agent is murdered by gun runners. His young son, Brady, shows up in town to seek out his father's killers. The leader, Davis, hightails it over the border and sends his men to kill
Brady. Brady foils their attempts, and Davis and Brady meet in a showdown in which Brady gains the final act of revenge. Bancroft, always making her presence known, is the halfbreed love interest for Brady.
