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