He upholds the law, even when it might cost him everything...
Shortly after the turn of the century on the Colorado range near the town of Sage, Will Landry, an African-American land agent empowered to enforce the Van Wyck Fence Law, finds himself in a precarious position. He and his assistant, Jake Hoge, find the body of a lynched nester swinging out on the prairie. Angered, Landry realizes that the victim is on land owned by German immigrant cattle baron Joachim Lang-a bad man if there ever was one.
To bring the powerful cattleman to justice, Landry faces an uphill fight against both racism and a town bureaucracy reluctant to challenge Lang. Throughout his fight, Landry picks up other allies; all outcasts or people with their own personal vendettas against Lang.
Gradually, Landry's persistence and respect for the law cause cracks in Lang's armor, setting the stage for a final showdown that will test one man's mettle and resolve like no other challenge he's ever faced.
