The Kid has a tight hold over the town, but Dalton's desperation for employment means he lands the task of resolving the newest kidnap situation. He is asked to deliver a ransom to the bandit in order to secure the safe return of the young Sera Culver. Before Dalton reaches the rendezvous point however, disaster strikes and the ransom is stolen. A fearsome shootout leaves him stranded in the wilderness: no ransom, no girl, no bounty. With the fate of a young woman at stake, the ransom money to hunt down, and the Sundown Kid to bring to justice, can Dalton fight the good fight and help Lonetree prevail?
