Storyline

Charles Ivers is found murdered along with a bloody rifle next to drunk and passed out Bradley Mason. After Adams jails Mason, he decides the wagon train will hold a trial for Mason as they are too far from the law. A British Barrister agrees to be prosecutor but when the other two attorneys decline to defend Mason, the job is left to an elderly law professor who never practiced law. Adams is forced to stop a lynching lead by Mr. Miller and his two sons as the whole camp is itching for fast justice. Applewhite tries to put on a strong defense as he actually believes Mason to be innocent but Mason's memory is poor due to his drinking that evening. The only person to have faith in him is sixteen year old Eileen who is in love with Mason. Applewhite is able to prove some of the witnesses against Mason are unreliable but when Ivers' son Davy takes the stand accusing Mason of killing his father, Mason suddenly breaks down admitting he killed Ivers making it look like an open and shut case ...
