The movie takes place in the late 1880s. Nate Harlow and his partner “Griff” have found gold in Bear Mountain. Griff is later captured by the Mexican military and condemned to be shot as a spy. He agrees to give the General, Javier Diego, half of the gold on Bear Mountain if he spares his life. Diego agrees. Later, the General sends Colonel Daren, his right-hand man, to kill Nate Harlow and his family. Daren shoots Nate and his wife, but his son, Red, manages to shoot Daren's arm off and escape.
Red grows up to be a bounty hunter. The movie begins with him battling a gang led by Bloody Tom. Hoping to claim the bounty on the gang, he takes the bodies to the town of Widow's Patch. In Widow's Patch, he is attacked by the Ugly Chris gang. He and the sheriff are able to eliminate the gang, but the sheriff is badly wounded, and has to travel to the town of Brimstone for a doctor.
After Red drops off the sheriff at Brimstone, the sheriff of Brimstone asks Red to take care of some criminals for him. After they are killed, he asks for the bounty on the criminals' heads, but the bank manager says to him that the gold wagon has not arrived yet; then he learns that one of the townsfolk, Annie Stoakes, is in danger of losing her farm to the bank, whose manager, Griff, also owns the Bear Mountain gold mine. Remembering that his family was killed over that mine, he goes to talk to her to find out more information. This leads him to the sheriff of Brimstone, where he finds out that General Diego and Colonel Daren killed his parents, and that there is a bounty on them.
He later learns during a quick-draw competition, called the Battle Royale, that the governor is Griff, who sold his parents to General Diego. Griff orders Red to be killed by quick-draw champion Mr. Kelley, but Red kills Kelley and pursues Griff to his mansion. There, Red shoots Griff in a quick-draw showdown. After Red kills Griff, the sheriff offers Red some gold, but he refuses it, instead taking Griff's Scorpion Pistol. Red says “It never was about the money.”
