Recently released from jail, ex-convict cowboy John Cord (Joel McCrea) is hired to drive a large herd of cattle to Fort Clemson. However, the man who hires him turns out to be the very same person that had Cord thrown in jail five years earlier for vandalizing his town in an alcohol-induced rampage. Though this town leader does not remember Cord, Cord remembers him all too well. He takes the job, knowing this could be the perfect opportunity to get back at the man who destroyed his life.
