A nun, the only survivor of an Indian massacre of a wagon train, is taken in by a cantankerous old gunfighter who helps her to evade the marauding Indians during her attempt to reach Sante Fe. During the arduous journey they slowly develop an unlikely friendship and respect for each other despite Madron initially treating Sister Mary very badly as merely a sex object.
