Sam Elliott plays a sharp-shooting cowboy, hired to guard cattle on a sprawling ranch, who discovers that some of the other hands are confederates of a gang of rustlers. While on their trail, he's shot from behind, sending him on a mission of vengeance. Katharine Ross, Barry Corbin also star. 117 min.
