Earl and Jamal capture a black man wanted for murder. The man says he'll never get a fair trial because he's black. A wealthy rancher holds great influence over townspeople. It was his foreman who was killed, and he is convinced the black man did it. Another bounty hunter shows up and begins work for the rancher. Earl knows the sheriff and says he's an honest man. The black man has an alibi, but the rancher's influence could get the farmer/alibi to change his mind.
