Synopsis:
After being shielded from a posse by Jacqueline Pencarrow, Wade Holden promises to go straight. After five years, Holden, now sporting a beard and known as Tex Brandon, returns to the area and learns that the Pencarrow ranch is about to go under because of rustlers. Brandon takes a job as Mr. Pencarrow's foreman and assembles a band of young ex-rustlers, who want to change their ways. Brandon slowly succeeds at his task of retrieving the Pencarrow cattle and eliminating the rustlers, while wondering if his past will come back to haunt him and deny him the love of Jacqueline Pencarrow.
