Set in the Old West, a desperate man, Earl Weber, attempts to flee to Mexico with the money he has just stolen from the Harper Mining Company. Determined but lost, he enlists the aid of an unsuspecting old prospector to guide him across the desert.

Meanwhile, a relentless posse led by Harper, the mining company owner, gives chase to prevent Weber's escape across the border. Weber finds the hostile landscape useful in eluding his pursuers. But what he doesn't realize is that justice will inevitably be served..even in THE BADLAND.
