In this 'anti-western', Peck plays James McKay, a retired sea captain who travels to the West to marry his fiancee (Baker) and finds himself in a world with which he has nothing in common. Amid a civil war, his fiancee's controlling father and men who challenge him at every turn, this is the story of a man who struggles to remain true to his own values at whatever cost.
