Old time lawman Charlie Crow finds peace and tranquility in Wyoming, but before he can settle down with the woman he loves, he must face a distant and dangerous past.

His quick gun is wanted one last time if the town of Carol Creek is to survive the threatened chaos.

Young gunfighter Billy Joe Watts rides hard on the lawman's tail, determined to kill the one man he fears. It is a long, hard ride for a man named Crow...
