Jody Deakes joins up with his father after many years, only to discover that his dad is part of an outlaw gang on the run from a relentless bounty hunter named Santee. Jody is orphaned soon after Santee catches up to the gang, and follows Santee in hopes of taking vengeance for his father's death. Instead, however, Jody discovers that Santee is a good and loving man, tormented by the death of his young son at the hands of another outlaw gang. Santee and his wife take Jody in and a father-son relationship begins to grow. Then the gang that killed Santee's son shows up.

In 1972-73, actor Edward Platt (played "The Chief", in the secret agent parody TV show, "Get Smart" 1965-70) raised enough money to produce "Santee", which was one of the first independent color movies that was shot entirely on videotape. Platt saw the many advantages of using videotape rather than film. And his crew shot the production with portable TV cameras (Norelco PCP-70 NTSC analog television system & the Philips PC-70 studio color camera) along with the Ampex VR-3000 two-inch portable video tape recorder. Once completed, the images were transferred to the 35 mm film format for it's theatrical release. See more
