Shane is a mysterious man who travels to a secluded valley in Wyoming where people soon realize that he is a gunfighter and he somehow becomes involved in a dispute between Joe Starrett and cattle baron Rufus Ryker, who does not want any homesteaders on the land. Shane becomes a farmhand of Starretts and soon realizes young Joey Starrett looks up to him since he is a gunfighter. Shane also realizes he is somewhat attracted to Starrett’s loving wife, Marian.

A group of homesteaders and Shane get into a fight with Ryker’s men when they go into town. Joe interferes and they take down his men. Ryker then threatens that if he sees any of them in town, they will be dead.

Ryker, not liking that Joe has Shane, enlists a gunfighter named Jack Wilson. It gets more serious when Wilson murders a homesteader who defended himself, leaving the rest of the men scared and wanting to leave. More problems come their way when Ryker’s men burn down the house of Lewis. The homesteaders decide to stay and help Lewis out with his home, even though Ryker could do the same thing to their homes. Joe Starrett has had enough and is determined to kill Ryker and Wilson so the town will be at peace. Shane does not want Joe to face Wilson, so he hits him over the head with his gun to stop him from leaving and rides into town to face the two devious men alone.
