In this story of an indomitable woman and the men who will risk anything to have her, rodeo star Jeff McCloud (Robert Mitchum) hobbles back home to Oklahoma after a series of accidents. But when ambitious young rider Wes Merritt (Arthur Kennedy) hires McCloud as coach, the younger man's wife, Louise (Susan Hayward), is the lure that attracts McCloud. Louise is willing to allow McCloud's advances if it will help her husband; however, when the unstable triangle of passion inevitably leads to a confrontation between Merritt and McCloud, the aging rider enters one last rodeo just to thwart Merritt's ambition - but at a terrible price.
