While moving his family out West, Dr. John Brighton (Joel McCrea) loses his wife in childbirth. After her death, John sets up his home in Indian territory. A few years later, when his daughter is seven years old, two women fight for the doctor's affections: a ranch widow, Ann (Barbara Hale), and young Native American maiden Maria (Gloria Talbott), who watches over the doctor's daughter. When the town bully, Mel (Douglas Dick), wants Maria's father's land, the doctor gets involved.
