Shane.Shane a mysterious traveller and ex-gunfighter enters into the life of Joe Starrett and his family and carves a place for himself in their hearts. Although he tries to leave his gunslinging past behind revealing little about himself and refusing to even carry a gun the family senses a quiet tension about him like a slow-burning fuse. In the end Shane decides to fight cattle baron Luke Fletcher and hired gun Stark Wilson in order to break the power of the cattlemen over the homesteaders and save Joe Starretts farm.
