After killing two sheriff's deputies who were attempting to force their way into his mother's cabin, Billy Free immediately becomes the object of an extensive manhunt. And although he manages to elude a Greene County posse and make his way into Texas, a county sheriff named Bill Fink is waiting there to teach him that crooked lawmen are by no means unique to Mississippi. After another run-in with the powers that be, Free finds himself in even more trouble, fleeing across the Texas frontier in a place where all but the beautiful and loyal Bess Noble believe him to be guilty of murder.
