Synopsis: Will Kane returns to the town of Hadleyville (a year after the events of High Noon) which is in the hands of a corrupt sheriff and his two aides. J.D. Ward, the man that replaced Kane as sheriff, is a tyrant who shoots up the horses Will has just purchased. Ward is after Ben Irons and his men because of wanted posters, even though Ward knows they are innocent. Ben gets away. Ward pursues him. Kane decides to help Ben. Ben dies from a gunshot wound. Ward is going to arrest Kane for helping Ben, but the town rallies together and issues a warrant for Ward's arrest. Miracle-like, Kane again puts on the tin star (that he threw on the ground at the end of the 1952 original movie) and shoots Ward to death.
