Bill Longley shares a stagecoach compartment with Jody Sammett and his pregnant wife Maria on their journey to meet Jody's father, Big Jim Sammett for Christmas. Jody dies helping to fight off bandits who try to rob their stagecoach and Maria's father-in-law refuses to take in his son's Mexican-American wife or allow anyone in town to help her even though she has started in labor. While Bill tries to convince the old man to change his mind, the unsuccessful bandits try to abduct the town's only doctor to operate on their seriously wounded companion. Written by
