A powerful landowner attempts to drive off Chinese miners from their legally owned mountain of gold, but complications arise from his son's love for the girl Cloud Shadow.
A frightened boy, defending a jail against the bandits who killed his sheriff father, inspires courage in an adult coward. At the moment of truth, Caine teaches them both to temper justice with mercy.
Caine is falsely arrested for stealing and is sent to a silver mine. After arriving, he teaches a fellow prisoner how to endure extreme heat, cold and how to survive in a serious cave-in.
Ancient Warrior, an aged Indian accompanied by Caine, seeks burial in his sacred, ancestral land. But the burial site is located dead center in a violent, Indian-hating town called Purgatory. Gary Busey guest stars.
