This drama is based on the true story of a Mexican immigrant and his wife, who travel to California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Their only friend in the area is an army captain. They are taunted by a group of racist miners, and the wife is raped and murdered. The husband swears revenge, rounds up a group of men, and conducts raids on mining camps in search of the murderers, becoming a successful gambler along the way. The army captain is forced to kill him when the raids get too wild.
