Texas Ranger Buck Duane comes home to find that his father, Tom Duane, has been murdered. In revenging the death, he is branded an outlaw and is forced to flee to a small Texas town where others connected to his quest are. There, he is befriended by saloon entertainer Kate and meets and falls in love with Nancy Bowdrey. He finally, after several gunfights, secures the evidence to clear his name, and is aided by his old Texas Ranger comrades in bringing the outlaws to justice.
