While transporting Dan Lingle to stand trial for robbery and murder, Hardie's stagecoach is attacked by the outlaw's gang. Among the passengers on the coach are Lingle's estranged wife and son and the outlaw determines to stand with them.
Outlaw Dan Lingle captured in Painted Rock is being transported for trial by Jim Hardie on a Wells Fargo stage coach. Besides the two of them there is a reporter and a woman and her son on the stage. When the reporter tries to talk to the other passengers, no one responds so he tries striking up a conversation with the boy. The reporter says he was in Painted Rock because he had heard there would be a story about Dan Lingle but he never showed. After making some disparaging remarks about what he would do if he met Lingle, Hardie removes the coat covering the handcuffs on him and Lingle. When the reporter learns who the prisoner is, he wants off the stage as he is afraid with good reason that Lingle's gang will attack the stage to rescue Lingle. Hardie refuses as they are too far away to walk anywhere but he agrees about the attack potential. When they are attacked, his plan surprises everyone and the woman tells the boy the truth about Lingle - his dad. Written by
