In this provocative western, a lazy band of prospectors find a mother lode in Indian territory. The miners cut a deal to mine the gold. Unfortunately, one of the sourdoughs is greedy and breaks the agreement, causing the Indians to swear vengeance. When the battle is over, only the leader and one other are left. Suddenly the film ends and their fate remains unknown.
