In order to clear his name (again), Billy the kid infiltrates a band of ruthless armed robbers and discovers that the gang's leader is actually a female ranch owner.
Falling in love (or about as much in love a Saturday matinée western hero is allowed to with a villain), Billy tries to persuade her to go straight before things get too out of hand.

There's too much talk and not enough action or worthwhile story to make this memorable.
