Ted Barnett (Giuliano Gemma) is a young man framed for a crime he did not commit. His escape from prison alarms several inhabitants of Kartown, a community close to the Mexican border. Among those concerned are his former fiancé Dolly (Nieves Navarro), whose false testimony sent him to prison. In the meantime Dolly has since married the town's sheriff (Francisco Rabal), appointed by Cobb (Conrado San Martín), a corrupt landowner and arms smuggler. Barnett then goes to Kartown to find out who really killed his father and why. When he finally gathers all the information, he decides to inform the local judge. But once again he is accused of a crime and this time he literally risks his neck as he is condemned to be hanged.
