Synopsis: A sheriff in search of forgiveness faces off with a preacher who hates the sin AND the sinner. . .
The Yates Gang, led by its charismatic leader, William Fox, operates by a code. They'll harm no women or children, they'll give half the money they steal to the poor, and they'll kill any lawman, banker, or trainman who tries to stop them.
Then a robbery gone bad sends the gang on the run. Fox knows their days are numbered, so he leads his men to a distant town called Crowsfall, Kansas, where they can reform themselves and start fresh. He'll be the town sheriff, and atone for his past by offering a second chance to those who would normally hang.
But Crowsfall has drawn the attention of another man interested in redemption. Full of righteous fury, sinister cult leader Reverend Jessup intends to purge Crowsfall of all sin—and declares war on the outlaw-turned-sheriff and the entire gang.
