An agent of the pony express company, Idaho Kent, is asked to reach Sacramento with proof against a dishonest politician candidate for the local elections. Several people, paid by the corrupt man, try to stop him... Kent's route to Sacramento will be red with blood!
Even in his most routine western Giuseppe Vari shows that he was a capable director for this genre. It might be a simple film, but it is still an entertaining one.
