Directed by Mario Caiano, this movie is a thrilling ride through the Wild West with action-packed scenes that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The story revolves around the character of Django (Anthony Steffen), a gunfighter who is hired by a group of bandits to help them rob a train carrying gold from the Durango Mint. However, unknown to the other members of the gang, Django has his own agenda and is secretly working with an undercover agent named Colonel Morales (Galeazzo Benti).

As the train journey progresses, Django must navigate the dangerous terrain and constantly battle with the rest of the gang members. The leader of the gang, Lucas (Mark Damon), is particularly suspicious of Django and tries to find out his true motives.
