Harry Collings and his friends Arch and Dan are drifters. In the small town of Del Norte, Harry suddenly announces that he is going to return to his home and family after a seven-year absence. When some local thugs led by a man named McVey kill Dan, Harry avenges his friend by shooting and crippling McVey. After burying Dan, Harry and Arch travel hundreds of miles to Harry's home. His wife Hannah is not happy to see Harry, who asks if he can stay on as a hired hand. She agrees to this, and the couple is beginning to heal their relationship when McVey kidnaps Arch. Now Harry is forced to choose between his loyalty to his wife and his best friend.
