Plot

A retired Confederate veteran returns to his remote family home only to find it has been ransacked by a Comanche raiding party that killed everyone except his nine-year-old niece. She has been kidnapped and raised for four years as a Comanche. The veteran vows to find her and begins a long search of the Wild West along with a young companion, whom he doesn’t like. The niece has also faced challenges as the prisoner of the Comanches and is not the same little girl she once was. Will the unplacatable hatred of the Comanches allow him to save the girl or kill her as part Comanche?
