A Spaniard owns a ranch in California in 1848. A sleezy real estate agent wants to sell off lots on his land to settlers. The realtor hires a gunslinger to kill the Spaniard, but the gun for hire ends up working for the Spaniard instead. The story is about gringos trying to steal the land of the Spaniard, who is the only honorable man in the bunch. He allows the settlers to use the land on his ranch to start their farms, so they ultimately have no conflict with him. The only one who is not satisfied is the land speculator.

There are also several romances and some gunfights, for those who like that sort of thing.

Plot
In this western set in the California territory in the mid-19th century, a rancher tries to protect his Spanish land grant from greedy American landgrabbers. Unfortunately the eastern interlopers bring in a Texas gunfighter to frighten the man. The gunfighter ends up falling in love with the rancher's sister, and decides to spare them. In the end, the gunman is killed during the climactic shoot out. The girl who loved him is devastated. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
