In 1881, a female gunslinger, known only as “The Lady”, arrives in the Old West town of Redemption, encountering a Blind Shoeshine Boy and a repulsive escaped convict named Scars, whose proposition she harshly rebuffs. The town is ruled by a ruthless outlaw named John Herod, who hosts a fast-draw single elimination tournament for anyone brave enough to enter. At a sign-up meeting in the town saloon that night, the rules are explained: any contestant may challenge any other, no challenge can be refused, every contestant must fight once per day, and a fight continues until one contestant either yields or dies. The Lady announces her participation, insisting that she is only interested because of the large cash prize.

During the sign-up, Herod’s henchmen arrive with Cort, a preacher ‘recruited’ for the event and a former member of their gang with exceptional speed and gunfighting skill. He refuses to participate, having forsworn violence after his conversion; however, Herod’s men mock him as a coward and attempt to hang him. The Lady saves Cort’s life by shooting through the rope, but he grimly remarks that it might be better if she had let him die. She then spends a drunken night with “The Kid”, a brash young man who runs a gun store and hopes to impress Herod. Believing Herod to be his father, The Kid hopes to earn his respect by entering and winning the tournament.
