Kenny is out riding when he spots a wild rabbit. He chases it into an abandoned mine and there's a cave in. The sheriff's posse looks for him and instead finds a Sioux Indian, Char, leading his horse. Their prejudices and his answers don't add up so he is arrested. In town he is spotted by his friend Cheyenne who goes to the jail to vouch for his friend. The sheriff doesn't buy his story and locks Char up. Meanwhile the boy's hysterical mother has to be calmed as well as the restless townspeople. Elsewhere, the local saloon owner Peg shows an interest in Kenny's disappearance. She soon comes between the town, the Sioux and Cheyenne as the secret she tells him threatens to tear everyone apart. Written by

You know, the sheriff might still be right. Maybe your friend had nothing to do with it but the indians at the camp, they might be holding him.
That's not likely. The horse is a valuable thing to an indian. If they'd of taken the boy they'd a kept the horse too.
