Blackfoot Territory, somewhen in the 1800s: A bunch of soldiers cross
the snow-covered countryside, short on food and half freezing to death -
so they decide to hang their prisoner of war (John Law), just to not have
to feed him through. Later they run into a family of women and demand
food. The women give what they can, but the soldiers deem it not enough
and kill them before wandering on. Later they'll sacrifice another of

be the immortal soldier on the girl's road to vengeance ...
