A frontier feud breaks out on the border of Mexico when Gangster Hagan's brothers are wiped out whilst conducting a raid on the Nevada Kid's family. Hagen (Kinski) orders his henchmen to destroy the Hamiltons, but doesn't reckon with the 'Kid' (Cameron), who on returning from war teams up with a bounty hunter to hunt down the bandit gang.


Prolific filmmaker Demofilo Fidani directed this revenge-themed western under the name "Miles Deem," as well as co-authoring the screenplay with Tonino Ricci. Nevada Kid (Giovanni Scarciofolo as "Jeff Cameron") and a nameless bounty-hunter (Gordon Mitchell) spend the film searching for Hagen (Klaus Kinski), an evil outlaw whose gang slaughtered Nevada's family. The film gains from fine cinematography by Aristide Massaccesi (later known as cult director "Joe D'Amato") and a supporting cast including Hunt Powers, Simone Blondell, and Dennis Colt.
