In the Wild West, the American Army are fighting the Indians, in a succession of brutal massacres. A small group of soldiers led by a Sergeant, captures and rapes a squaw, who puts up a brave fight against superior numbers. Billy, a young cowboy, will try to help her against the soldiers, and the white people in town - and ultimately will fall in love with her. But he will have to pay a dear price for love.
... De myrdede for at overleve![Denmark]
