The Rogers family are rich and powerful cattle and land owners. The Hernandez brothers rebel against them, killing a foreman and stealing the takings of the sale of a flock of sheep. The Rogers are used to settling their affairs personally and kill Pablo, the first of the Hernandez brothers, while the other two manage to escape, although their house is burned down. Maria, Pablo's wife, has only one wish: to revenge her husband's death, and only one person will help her to achieve this: Manuel, the lonely man whom everybody fears... Maria decides to kidnap Betty, the Rogers's beloved young daughter, and oblige her father and four brothers to humble themselves on Pablo's grave, to ask for forgiveness. The plan finally succeeds after many surprise-actions and killings.
