Despite sitting on a property rich with gold, Rancher Tom Storm (Rex Bell) is struggling to pay off his mortgage. He goes to the bank to request an extension, only to find it being robbed by three outlaws. Storm kills one in self-defense. In a cruel twist, he is later accused of murdering the bank robber, and forced to consult lawyer Steve Varick (Earl Dwire). The fishy accusation turns out to be the machinations of cattle rustler Max Durante (Karl Hackett), who wants Storm's gold.
