When aging Pat Garrett becomes the sheriff in Lincoln County, New Mexico, the governor of the state expects him to bring down his old friend, Billy the Kid. Garrett and his deputies trap Billy in his hideout and force him to surrender. As the gallows are being built for him, Billy is tormented by a self-righteous deputy named Ollinger, but eventually he manages to escape from jail and uses Ollinger's own gun to kill him. Sheriff Garrett appoints a new posse to capture Billy again and some of them die in the attempt. Billy keeps running, but the relentless Garrett finds him one night near Fort Sumner where they have their final showdown.
