When four dangerous convicts escape from prison, US Marshal Ellis Stack is sent to track them down. His journey takes him through two remote mining towns. At the first, another US marshal and five deputies are murdered by the outlaws. From there, the trail leads to Mud City, where some miners have been murdered and the escaped prisoners are the main suspects. But Ellis, with the help of an Indian called Apache Joe, discovers that the blame has been laid at the wrong door...
