Plot Overview

After Russel Ganaway is released from prison, he returns to North Fork intent on showing the people there that he is rehabilitated. Ganaway had been convicted of robbing the stage just outside of town some years before and killing the driver. Not all of the money was recovered and it is generally assumed that either Ganaway or one of the two men who helped him but were never caught still have the money. When his two accomplices show up wanting the cash, he desperately tries to lay the blame on someone else.
