Jess is on the hunt for the vicious cold-blooded killer, Trent Bellamy. Bellamy has eluded him for a long time, but he knows Jess in on his tail. Bellamy sets up an ambush for him and shoots Jess off his horse, but seconds before Bellamy finishes him, he kills Bellamy.

Left for dead on the trail, Dr. Phil Johnston and his daughter, Willow, come across him on the ground, unconscious and barely breathing. Willow knows a lot about Jess and his reputation. They load him and Bellamy into their wagon and take him to the town of Cooper, where Willow nurses him back to health.

While there recuperating, a slick-looking man comes to town in search of Jess. He intends on killing him as a revenge killing, but the bank in Cooper gets robbed by some thugs who belonged to Bellamy’s gang. During the robbery, Willow gets shot along with the marshal in town.

Jess leaves Cooper the next day after the robbery in search of the two men who robbed the bank. The gunslinger who vowed to kill him, Abel Winburne, volunteers to ride with Jess in search of the robbers. Then, the marshal, who was wounded in the robbery, agrees to let the two hired guns that Jess threatened to kill when they were beating up a young boy in the middle of the street join the posse.

Jess finds himself leading a posse made up of two hired guns that don’t like him, a wounded marshal and a gunslinger who has promised to kill him when the robbers are caught and the money is returned. The ride is long, frustrating and seeming hopeless as they chase the robbers halfway across the state of Texas. As the pursuit continues, he worries if he’ll get shot by the robbers or one of the men involved in the posse.
