Before his very eyes, a young boy watches the cutthroats of a small gang raid his humble home, rape and slaughter his whole family. Fifteen years later, Bill Meceita, the once-helpless boy and the sole survivor of the massacre, has now become a cool and skilful sharpshooter, seeking revenge against the band of unknown killers. In the meantime, the seasoned gunslinger and freshly out of prison, Ryan, has already embarked on a journey of sweet retribution, unaware that before long, he will cross paths with Bill, sharing the same desire for justice. But what could possibly unite the two unlikely companions?
This is revenge... And there's nothing sweet about it!

The original title of the film was "Duel in the Wind." Lee Van Cleef
came up with the Italian title while discussing the movie with John Phillip Law
, who saw the film as a "man to man" story. Van Cleef remarked, "Why don't they call it 'From Man to Man'?"
