Adam and Little Joe try to find a fair trial for a saloon girl accused of theft and murder, hiding her from a corrupt sheriff's lynch mob after she stows away in the back of their supply wagon, all while escorting a self-righteous, hard-nosed judge to Virginia City.


Joe and Adam find saloon girl Lila Conrad hiding in the back of their supply wagon. She killed a barroom customer in self defense and is hiding from the dead man's buddies who have formed a lynch mob.

Traveling with them is Judge Knowlton, a rigid and merciless man who works against their efforts to protect Lila.
