In the little town of Dorado, widely known as a town with no crime and no bank to rob, young Polish-born Steve Kovacs is fighting a two-edged sword of prejudice; his foreign birth and also the fact that his brother, Nick Kovacs, is the leader of an outlaw gang known as The Missourians. Marshal Bill Blades and lawyer John X. Finn are on the boy's side but are fighting a losing battle, especially when Nick brings his gang to Dorado away from the robbery and murder charges behind them in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Nick uses threats against Mrs. Novaks, their mother, to force Steve to help him hold up and destroy a wagon train of supplies intended for the building of a new church. Masked, and wearing Steve's easily-recognized plaid shirt, Nick and his henchman Stash robs postmaster Walt of the $10,000 deposited there to pay for the church-building supplies, and the murder of Mayor McDowell by Lucius Valentine are both blamed on Steve.

Did You Know?
Mayor Grant McDowall
We don't want foreigners around here, especially those with crime in their blood. If you don't approve, why don't you back home to the old country?
John X. Finn
Maybe he likes it here, like your folks did when they come over here from Ireland.
Why don't you listen to him? He's makin' sense.
John X. Finn
This is the United States - where every man has a chance to prove himself, whether he's a saint or a sinner - whether he was born in Texas or Timbuktu.
