The trail leads into the panhandle, into the notorious no man's land where outlaws and renegades run wild. A chance encounter with a young woman, Bess Armstrong, whose family has been murdered by these same outlaws is also seeking revenge. After seeing her hatred, and bitterness, he changes his mind and realized that revenge was not the answer. Determined to take these men back to stand trial, he not only has to confront the outlaws, he has to stop her from killing them. Will he stop her cruel intentions? or will he resort to killing these men as he had planned? A chilling and soul searching story in the wild and wooly west of yesterday.
