Young Law is hunting for the man who killed his parents. He meets Van Cleef, a master gunfighter who is hunting the bandits who had him imprisoned. Together, Law and Van Cleef find an increasingly civilized American West, in which criminals have respectable positions. Law learns that Van Cleef was present at the killing of his parents, but the young man rides off rather than kill his new friend. This film is a bit more violent than the average spaghetti western.
