A strange wanderer named Shane makes his way into a farming community that has only recently been settled by a group of farmers. In this quiet town he accepts the generosity and kindness of the Starrett family who make their living as farmers, as most of their neighbors do. As time goes by Joe who is the head of the Starrett family becomes quite astonished in how Shane can manage a group of intimidating followers of the land tycoon by the name of Emile Meyer. For the most part Joe trusts Shane but not when it comes to his wife, who appears attracted to him. When disagreements break out between the farmers and the larger population of cattlemen, Emile Meyer employs the services of a professional and evil gunman named Jack Wilson who also does not take a liking to Shane. Jack Wilson and the Starrett family both become problems that Shane must eventually face.
