Following the war, both wild young men rode with an outlaw gang, but have subsequently reformed with Swede switching to the right side of the law. The two men are reunited on a mission to track down Sam�s estranged outlaw son, Johnny Kendrick, in an effort to save him from deeper trouble and possibly a violent death.
