PlotEdit

Pursued by the Dawson gang, Clint McCoy returns to his old hometown for the first time in many years. He left long ago after the infidelity of wife Sara, leaving her and their infant son Tige behind.

Tige is now fully grown. He believes his mother to be dead and hates his father for deserting them. When he comes to town with the Dawson gang, Tige encounters the saloonkeeper, Sara, but doesn't realize that she is his mother.

Calling his own father out for a gunfight, Tige does not get the better of him, but Clint refuses to kill him. Tige then sits back to watch the Dawsons do away with Clint, but when Sara fights by Clint's side, she is mortally wounded. As she is dying, Sara explains who she is and why her father left. Tige then joins his father against the Dawsons.
