Slim Sherman is in town representing the stage line in a contract with Sheila Dawson for getting right of way through her property. She's the widow of an outlaw with no head for running a ranch and she's been having bad luck in keeping a foreman, with the current one in jail. Except he's actually an investigator for the stage company. He asks Slim to take the job of foreman because he's convinced that the money Sheila's husband stole and hid before he died is somewhere on the ranch. Slim takes the job but no one is what they seem from the hands to Sheila herself. As Slim gets closer to the truth about the money the more danger he's in until the truth is finally revealed.
