Knocked unconscious and framed for the murder of scheming rancher, Flint Durfee, Hoss Cartwright refuses his father's expensive lawyer and trusts his defense to new friend Whit Parker, a troubled trial attorney who is drowning his past in alcohol.


Framed lawyer Whitney Parker has been hired to represent Hoss, who has been charged with a murder. Parker's best days are behind him and he's now an alcoholic. The Cartwrights are determined to keep the lawyer sober so he can save Hoss from hanging.
