In the late 1800's, aging Texas Ranger Billy Dixon decides it's time to turn in his badge and settle down with the Widow Tucker. On his last hunt, he rescues young Colt Patterson, an innocent victim from certain death. Billy takes him under his wing and teaches him how to survive in the harsh and brutal desert.
The Apache tribe is crowded into the hellhole the white men called Bosque Redondo, where they are starved and treated like animals.
Charley Tree, who has been adopted by the Apache Tribe, escapes and declares a one-man war against the entire white race. Billy and Colt are pitted against the horrific but compelling Charley. When they meet, only one can live.
