This 1963 Eurowestern begins with a dead rancher and some Indians, indicating that the Apaches have broken their peace treaty. Only a young boy knows that the killings (which include his parents) were actually done by ruthless land grabbers hoping to start a war between the Indians and the settlers. Shatterhand (played by Lex Barker), who is the adopted brother to the Apache's chief, tires to clear his friends' names and follows the trail of deception which leads right back to the gates of the Cavalry's fort.
