After fighting for the Union Army in the American Civil War, Ringo returns home to find that his property has been taken over by a family of Mexican bandits. His fiancee is about to marry the Mexican gangster behind all this. He decides to go undercover disguised as a Mexican. While there he discovers he has a daughter.
