Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this western, a young cowboy becomes a man as he tries to decide whether to escape the notorious shadow of his late father, a feared and famous gunfighter, or follow in his footsteps. Many young men assume that the cowboy has followed in his father's footstep and challenge him. Though he remains undecided, he does face down one group of young men and they begin treating him as their leader. The trouble begins when some of the group begin plotting to rob a bank without telling him. In the end, the young man decides to follow the higher path, and he stops the robbery.
