Marshal Crown is shot while pursuing a murderous gang of outlaws who prey on isolated Indian villages. He is found, hidden and nursed back to health by Heller, a young woman who was raised by Indians but now works for the outlaw gang. Crown and Heller escape to Cimarron, but are pursued by the outlaws who want to punish Heller for her treachery.

The plot doesn’t say much for Marshal Crown’s ability to protect a crime victim (for example, by posting some deputized Cimarron men to guard Heller). Of course, his negligence made possible a suspenseful shoot-out and prevented inn-keeper Dulcey Coopersmith from having a rival for Marshal Crown’s affections.
