Synopsis

Mike (Brett Halsey) returns home in order to leave his gunfighting days behind him and settle down on a farm with his old sweetheart but things do not go as planned. Finding Jane murdered, Mike is set upon and left for dead by her 7 killers who also steal his life savings of $10,000; all in $50 dollar bills. They leave only seven dollars and Mike vows to track down every man, paying him back with a solitary dollar and death.

Comment

Average episodic revenge western in which the screenplay and the directing complement one another for the lack of ideas. The episodes in the jail and the desert are the best, while in the final episode the film hits rock bottom with the story's resolution.
