Morgan is cattleman and has left his ranch to his only daughter, Barbara. Seeing honesty in Harlan's eyes, Morgan asks him to go to his daughter and protect her from fortune hunters. Thereafter Harlan establishes himself as the protector of Barbara Morgan and deals out punishment to the girl's enemies through the lightning flash of drawn guns.
