Hashknife and his sidekick, Cedar, ride into town expecting to get a little rest. Instead, they find themselves in the middle of a dispute between a rancher and a homesteader.
Taggert and Callison are too ethical to act on their ill feelings, but a few of their men develop a plan to rustle some cattle, set the blame on their bosses, and ride away with the cows.
Tempers flare as the two men renew their hatred for each other. Will it lead to finally acting on their dislike? With the help of Hashknife and Cedar, Callison keeps a cool head, and they close in on the rustlers.
What kind of settlement can Hashknife arrive at? Will there be a show down in the street?
