Charlie Burns is a renegade living in the lawless frontier who, along with his two brothers Mikey and Arthur, is wanted for rape and murder. When local law enforcer Captain Stanley captures Charlie and Mikey, he offers Charlie a bleak choice in an attempt to end the brutality that surrounds them: the only way to save his younger brother Mikey from the gallows is to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older brother, who Captain Stanley believes to be the ringleader in the violence. Both men face an impossible moral dilemma that leads to a murderous climax.
