When the West was the West and cowboys still worked the range. A cowboy named Ben O'Shannon tried to live the life he loved but was erroneously accused of being a rustler and murderer. He was shot and on the run. To clear his name, he was helped by no other than the wife of the murdered man. With information the two had gathered, Ben took to the trail to track down the real rustlers and the murderer. What he found out about the sheriff and banker surprised him and made it hard to bring the rustlers to justice. With the help of the murdered man's wife, the U.S. Marshall was contacted and the rustlers and Ben were arrested. But Ben was later proved to be not guilty. Ben cleared his name and rode off into the sunset.
