In 1890 Johnny Blood, a hot-tempered young cowboy, is sentenced to hang for killing a man in a bar fight. His sister, a novice nun in a nearby mission, pleads with a corrupt governor to spare her brother’s life. The governor promises to pardon Johnny if the sister will 'do his bidding' for the night. Adding to the humorous complications are a hard-bitten sheriff, a voluptuous saloon girl, and a priest who reads Nietzsche.
