Brett McBain, a farmer of Irish ancestry living with their children in a poor area of the American West. It has prepared a welcome party for Jill, his future wife, who comes from New Orleans. When Jill arrives, a gang of gunmen has killed Brett and their children. The suspect of these crimes is Frank, who is under orders of the Millionaire Morton. Harmonica (so called because always carries this instrument and often uses it instead of talking) is looking for Frank. Harmonica receive the help of his friend Cheyenne, who has just escaped from jail. Jill, meanwhile, has inherited land after the death of her husband. Now the mayor wants the railway to pass through this field. By other side, Harmonica, Cheyenne and Frank are in a constantly fight.
