Storyline

A woman (Amanda) involved with bank extortion, is in a stage coach accident along with a number of other people, including a nun who was on her way to Gold Hill. All of the people on the stage perish but Amanda. Amanda decides to switch clothes with the nun, and continues on to Gold Hill. Nervous at first, she is moved by the love of the kids and changes her ways. But trouble brews when her accomplice recognizes her in town, then the sheriff recognizes her picture. She rushes back to run away, but finds Murphy at the bottom of the well, asphyxiated from deadly gas. She has a choice: run and get away, or help Murphy out of the well and get caught.
