Former bounty hunter Talion sets out to track down the men who brutally murdered his wife and son. The leader is Ike Slant, whose brother, a convicted killer, was shot down by Talion. While on the trail, Talion joins forces with Benny, a youngster who is hunting Slant for the bounty money. The two men stop at a trading post where Talion is attracted to pretty Bri Quince, but the men move on and eventually reach Slant's camp. In the ensuing gunfight, Slant's two cohorts are killed; but Talion's shooting hand is shattered, and Benny is blinded. Undaunted, the two men devise a plan whereby they work out a clock-like structure which enables Benny to fire at any given location by simply hearing a number called out to him by Talion. After months of practice, a showdown is arranged, and Slant arrives with Trumbull, his new accomplice, a grizzled derelict. When Slant reaches "3 o'clock," Talion calls out the number, and Benny fires three fatal shots; but he himself is killed by Trumbull. Talion then uses his other hand to shoot down the derelict. His mission of vengeance completed, Talion gives Bri a farewell look and leaves.
