Billy Watkins is a trouble making teenager that has arrived in Laramie to live with his uncle. He's fallen in with a couple of drifters and now he's under their thumb. When they try rustling Sherman cattle and Billy is caught, Daisy convinces Jess not to press charges but to make Billy work off the damages. Billy rubs Jess the wrong way with his sullen attitude but young Mike takes a shine to him, especially since he's teaching Billy to read. When a run in with Jess causes Billy to run away, he heads back to his no account friends, who are planning to rob his uncle. Daisy, having convinced Jess to take her to town to search for Billy, end up a hostage with Billy while his friends try to rob his uncle. It's up to Jess to stop them before Daisy, Billy and his uncle get hurt. Written by DarSpi
