Missouri farmer Jesse James works the land with his brother Frank. When the railroad illegally forces them off their land, leading to the death of their mother, they swear vengeance. Robbing trains, they help fund the fight back against the railroads despite the best efforts of Marshall Will Wright. In the end, with their gang disbanded, Jesse is shot in the back by his friend Bob Ford, leading to Fritz Lang's 1940 revenge-sequel, The Return of Frank James.
