Her parents and now her spouse are dead so a despondent Jessie Pilson heads to Tombstone, Arizona Territory to live with her cousin Reginald. Along the trek, outlaws attack her stage, but Sioux Chief Thunder Horse saves her life. He insures she makes it to town safely though he knows better than to escort her all the way.
The arrogant Reginald demands the beautiful Jessie serve as his trophy hostess to impress his affluent friends. With seemingly no choices she accepts her role of being on display. Meanwhile she misses the kind Thunder Horse and soon sneaks out to be with him. When Reginald finds out how she humiliates him with a savage, he decides to incarcerate his relative, allowing her no freedom; her only hope to escape the gilded cage resides with Thunder Horse.
