The honest sheriff of Serenity is too old to put up any opposition against Morgan Slattery and his bunch of crooks who are trampling all resistance underfoot and organizing public hangings with corpses exposed on the gibbet. Believe it or not, these curs are hand in glove with the prim stiff and starchy burghers of the town. Breaking through the climate of fear and the conspiracy of silence, a couple of valiant and stout-hearted citizens (a merchant, a clergyman, a teacher and a maîtresse) beg Tex and Carson to restore law and order: the two rangers, together with Kit Willer and Tiger Jack, hardly need to be asked!
