Vivyan, Gordon, and Lampkin are prospectors who bury their gold so warring Apaches will not be able to get to it. Lampkin rides off and gets shot in the back by Gordon, who permits the third man to live since Vivyan knows how to get back to the gold. The Apaches attack, forcing the two men

to abandon their horses. Lampkin's riderless horse runs by, and Gordon finally shoots Vivyan, riding off on his victim's horse. Vivyan is not dead, though, and is healed by Lu, a young Chinese girl who hopes the white man will take her to San Francisco. Meanwhile, Gordon rides into a nearby town

and meets Hagen, a bounty hunter. He tells Hagen that he saw Vivyan shoot Lampkin, and the pair agree to split the $1,000 reward. Hagen tracks down Vivyan and finds him with Lu, while Gordon goes back for the gold. Vivyan gets locked up, and Lu is forced to take Hagen to the secret spot where the

gold is buried. But Vivyan escapes, rescuing Lu. Hagen accidentally sets off a dynamite charge that reduces the gold to dust. This causes Gordon to go mad. He attacks Lu but is gunned down by Vivyan, who rides off with the girl. Some nice location shooting helps this seedy melodrama, but not

much.
