Not very interesting.

Maj. Adams finds a woman badly injured. He brings her into town, when he finds out she is the wife of a friend of Adams, the Captain in his Calvary unit. Her husband is away, so the major decides to look for the killer. He talks to family members and friends, and then they go into several boring flashbacks that don't involve any of the main cast. After awhile, it just doesn't matter.
