Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this drama, a man who is unjustly imprisoned escapes, and soon the manhunt is on. After a stranger (John Ethan Wayne) buys two horses at an auction in Tucson, he stops to water them on the property of rancher Ben Robeson (Ernest Borgnine). The unscrupulous rancher sees an easy mark, so he accuses the stranger of stealing the horses from his stables and ultimately gets him thrown in jail for three years. Determined to get revenge against the rancher, the stranger escapes with justice on his mind.
