When fugitive Leon Alastray meets Father Joseph, a Franciscan priest, while on the run, the two form a friendship. Joseph helps Alastray avoid the law, and Alastray disguises himself to travel with Joseph. As they reach a ghost town, Joseph is shot dead from afar. Alastray then meets half-Indian Telco, who explains that the inhabitants are in hiding from a band of violent Yaqui Indians. Mistaken for the priest, Alastray helps the villagers fight back.
