The movie begins with a stagecoach full of passengers travelling through the desert, only to be attacked by a group of bandits led by the notorious outlaw, El Blanco. The stagecoach driver is killed, and the passengers are left stranded in the middle of nowhere with no means of escape.

Among the passengers is a young woman named Juanita, who is on her way to meet her fiancé, a ranch owner named Tom Kenton. Tom is a respected member of the community, who is loved by everyone in town. However, he is currently embroiled in a bitter feud with a neighboring ranch owner, Jack Morrow, who is trying to steal his land.

Meanwhile, a group of masked vigilantes known as the Phantom Riders are on a mission to put an end to El Blanco's reign of terror. Led by the mysterious Phantom, they patrol the plains, keeping a watchful eye on the outlaws and ensuring that justice is served.

As the story unfolds, Juanita and the other passengers are rescued by a group of cowboys led by Bob Steele's character, Tex Martin. Tom Tyler plays the role of Tom Kenton, Juanita's fiancé, and Rufe Davis plays the comedic relief, playing the role of a hapless sidekick named Breezy. Together, they team up with the Phantom Riders to take down El Blanco and his gang, and to put an end to the feud between Tom Kenton and Jack Morrow.
