When Joe's latest fiance, Sally, is brutally strangled, it leaves the grieving youngest Cartwright son seeking justice and vengeance for his would-be bride. It's the town's new bank clerk, a seemingly genial by awkwardly shy boy who harbors some deep-seated dark personal demons, and is protected by the landlady who sees him as a surrogate son.
