Storyline

Hoss suffers a life-threatening injury while riding with his father and brothers. They rush him to a nearby town looking for help. However, the town doctor is in jail, about to be hanged for murder. Ben manages to arrange for the doctor to treat Hoss. Ben then learns that there's more to the doctor than at first appears to be the case. After further investigation, Ben finds that the doctor is innocent. However, he also discovers that the sentencing judge has special reasons for wanting the doctor dead. Ben must somehow convince the judge to do the right thing if the doctor is to be spared from hanging. Written by Charles Delacroix
