The storyline of the movie revolves around three people who become partners in their pursuit of a notorious outlaw named Blackie Blake. Johnny Brown is a cowboy who is tracking down Blackie Blake for the murder of his brother. On his journey, he meets Sandy Hopkins, an old cowboy who is also after Blackie because he had stolen his horse. Jim Harris is a bank teller who is forced to join Johnny and Sandy when he is falsely accused of stealing money from the bank.
