Malloy assists in the killing of a longshoreman who was talking to the crime commission investigating the union. He soon meets the dead man's agonized sister, Edie Doyle, and has a change of mind. Activist priest Father Barry argues with Malloy about morality, responsibility, and doing the right thing.

Nevada Smith is a rugged innocent boy born in the 1890's during California's gold rush days to an Indian mother and white father.
