Arriving home to settle down to the quiet life of a cattleman, Stuart Brannon finds his ranch occupied by gunmen claiming to hold a Spanish land claim on the property. Brannon drives them off knowing they'll be back with reinforcements. Friends and neighbors have come to the ranch and hunkered down, ready to defend it from a cannon and fifty hired guns sent to take it back. Brannon found himself fighting for the only thing in his life hanging onto, and right and wrong were perfectly clear in this situation. But the price of being right staggered him, especially when it was entirely possible that innocent people would have to pay with their lives.
