Ex-lawman Bill Strode rides into camp with a bullet hole in him to enlist the aid of Flint McCullough, whose life he saved years earlier in Abilene. Flint's questions get evasive answers, but he is willing to help Strode. After they leave camp, Earl Packer rides into camp looking for Strode and a meal. Hawks offers him a meal to help delay his departure. When a blizzard blows up in the mountains, Flint guides Strode to a deserted hunter's cabin. He tends to Strode who has an infection and is not lucid much of the time. It seems Strode now has a price of $5000 on his head and bounty hunter Earl Packer on his trail. After Packer catches up with them at the cabin, the three men ride out the blizzard together in the tiny cabin, Flint must keep them from killing each other and learns the whole story about Strode turning dirty for money. Packer, who wanted to kill Strode, awakens to the change in Strode due to the pressure of his life as Strode goes mad. Written by bobbymaxwell
