Mysterious and laconic, Shane rides down from the mountains into a valley where he encounters the homestead of farmer Joe Starrett, his wife Marian and their young son Joey. Starrett is the unofficial leader of a large group of homesteaders, who have united in opposition to a rapacious cattleman, Rufus Ryker. Ryker and his brother Morgan are trying to drive all the homesteaders out, so that they control over the entire valley. Shane takes Starrett's side in a confrontation with Ryker's men, and stays on to work on Starrett's farm. The homesteaders continue to resist, so Ryker imports famed gunslinger Jack Wilson from Cheyenne. When Wilson goads one of the homesteaders into a gunfight, he sets off a showdown between himself and Shane--with the future of the valley in the balance
