Ben Yuma is badly wounded in a train robbery and badly needs a doctor. He and his gang have holed up in the caves near Laramie where he sends his brother for the doctor. Slim Sherman has gone to Laramie to fetch the Doc Kingsley, the vet, for his prize mare. He also picks up Sandy, one of saloon girls that has been asked to leave town. On the way to the ranch, in a case of mistaken identity, Phil Yuma kidnaps all three thinking that Doc Kingsley is a medical doctor. Kingsley is forced to remove the bullet from Ben Yuma but all is not well within the gang's ranks. Someone in the gang shot Ben and the dissension puts Slim, Doc Kingsley and Sandy in danger. What they don't know is that Jess Harper, after hearing a strange story from Mose the stage driver, has been trailing them into the hills. It's now a question of whether or not Jess will reach them in time to help. Written by DarSpi
