An unusual, fascinating low-budget western starring Foster as a middle-aged rancher who dreams of setting up a successful horse ranch in Texas. His much-younger wife, Stuart, begins to feel trapped in their relationship and questions her love for Foster. Her doubts are strengthened by

Bishop, Foster's troublesome adopted son, who attempts to seduce his stepmother during the trio's obsessive search for a beautiful black-and-white wild stallion. On the trail, Foster captures the horse but breaks his leg. The return to the ranch is a tense one, aggravated by Foster's injury, the

unruly horse, and the lack of food. The group finds a deserted farmhouse containing supplies. Holed up together, tempers flare again when Foster apparently ignores Bishop's attentiveness to Stuart. The group leaves the farmhouse upon learning it had been evacuated when typhoid was discovered in

the water supply. The horse escapes, and Foster gets into a fight with Bishop. Bishop knocks the older man down a ravine and leaves him for dead. Surprisingly, the horse returns and saves Foster. Meanwhile, Bishop reveals he drank some contaminated water and dies of typhoid, leaving Stuart

stranded in the desert. While wandering, Stuart hears the thundering hoofbeats of the wild horse and thinks it's her imagination. Foster then arrives and saves her.
