The Hi-Lo Country depicts small town life in New Mexico following World War II. Young men who have returned home from the war attempt to regain their place in the disappearing way of life they left in the dusty, lonely hi-lo country.

Pete dates the woman he was seeing before the war, but becomes involved with another man's wife, who happens to be in love with Pete's friend, Big Boy Matson. Big Boy represents the vanishing cowboy. An unruly horse becomes his favorite mount and he announces to the world that Mona, the married woman, will be his also.
