Bill Watson is not the luckiest of men. First he finds himself accused of robbery and murder. Then he is kidnapped by the gang who actually committed these crimes and gets framed for a further series of bank raids. As if that weren't enough, he incurs the hatred and jealousy of the meanest of the bunch and a determined and able lawman is on his track. It will be a miracle if Bill can escape with his life never mind his liberty. But then nothing is impossible for the man who comes to be known throughout the West under just one legendary name—the Brazos Kid!
