The Story

Clive Emerson is a young fugitive with a troubled past and bleak future. When the law catches up with him, he's taken into custody by U.S. Marshal Preston Booth and begins a long train trip across the American southwest back to prison. Though Booth takes a personal interest in the case when Clive insists upon his innocence, the young man ultimately resigns himself to his sad fate. But little does Clive know that the future waiting for him when the train stops isn't at all what he expects - and neither, for that matter, is Marshal Booth.
