Rance Purcell the owner of the Big T and his foreman Gus Andrews take advantage of Earp's habit of investigating crime scenes alone. Earp rides to the abandoned cabin at Stony Wells where two men have been murdered. While in the cabin, he finds himself surrounded by thirty Big T men. Their plan is to wear him down as he runs out of water and ammo and take him at night. One of the Big T men feels the fight is unfair so he tells Doc Holliday who is sick. As Doc prepares to leave, he runs into Bat who goes with him. Several other outlaws who have been befriended by Earp decide to ride to his aid. The five outlaws and Bat are able to enter the cabin by various methods as Earp is down to his last four shells. The Big T men are aware help has arrived but are unaware of their skill level. Earp only wants to take the two leaders but Doc wants to kill them all. They try Earp's plan but the Big T leaders reject it leading to more killing and a final and climatic showdown.
