Dixie Howard is on the run, one step ahead of a bounty hunter when he and his companion Julie stop in Laramie to pick up a supply of whiskey. Dixie is forced into a gunfight and he ends up killing one of the stage drivers who suddenly recognized him. He's wounded and desperate for help, sending Julie to contact Jess Harper. Jess and Dixie rode together when Jess was young and he feels an obligation toward the man which puts him at odds with Slim Sherman, who's concerned that Jess doesn't see Dixie Howard for the killer he's become. Jess agrees to hide the pair out at a remote line cabin on the Sherman ranch but on the way there Kramer, the bounty hunter, catches up with the trio. Jess is able to disarm Kramer but Dixie shoots Kramer in the back anyway. Gradually Jess comes to realize that Dixie is no longer the man he once knew and that could be very dangerous for both Jess and Julie. Written by DarSpi
