After his wife is killed, U.S. Marshal Matt Morgan (Kirk Douglas) is so filled with rage and resentment that he's ready to put his life on the line to exact revenge. But in doing so he'll also be throwing away a lifelong friendship, as the murderer is the son of his old friend, rancher Craig Belden (Anthony Quinn). Understandably, Belden's determined to protect his child, even if it means he'll have to shoot the one man he's relied on for years.
