Owen Pentecost (Stack) is a man from North Carolina who comes west to Denver on a whim. He encounters Ann Merry Alaine (Mayo), who is going there to open a dress shop.
Both women begin to fall for Owen. He has money on his mind, specifically the gold of the town's Confederates, which turns out to be what brought him here. But the predominantly Union town wants the gold, and with the Civil War approaching, the town is split. Owen leads the Southerners in an escape attempt with the gold.
