The movie follows the story of Johnny Flagg (Russ Tamblyn), the son of a legendary gunfighter who was killed by an outlaw in a duel. Johnny, who inherited his father's skills with a gun, is now on a quest to find the man who killed his father and avenge his death.

Along the way, Johnny meets a group of outlaws who take him under their wing, including the charismatic and enigmatic Sam Foley (Kieron Moore) who appears to have a hidden agenda. As Johnny starts to learn the nuances of the outlaw lifestyle, he finds himself drawn to Sam's daughter, Claire (Jocelyn Lane), who he falls in love with.
