After being falsely accused of cattle rustling and murder, rancher Brent Landers (Giuliano Gemma) follows the trail of the man who set him up. Landers happens upon the young Lucy (Evelyn Stewart), stripped naked, tied spread eagle to the ground, and left to bake in the hot desert sun after being sexually assaulted by three men who robbed her stagecoach. Tex Slaughter, the local sheriff, is more interested in handing Brent over for the reward on his head, so Landers has his hands full protecting the recuperating Lucy and bringing the men who raped her to justice, while also trying to stay alive long enough to clear his own name.
Italy's 3rd-biggest box-office hit of 1965, just behind FaFDM and One Silver Dollar and before the 2 Ringo films.
