Pancho Lopez rides home to find that his daughter Dolores has been tricked into marrying Clem Slade, who has disappeared with her money. Pancho goes after Slade but while he is in pursuit, Dolores is killed and Slade gets away. Then, as Slade robs a store and kills the proprietor, he is surprised by a cowboy named Luke, who chases him away, but is seen fleeing the scene. Luke's brother Ace goes after Slade in place of Luke and soon meets Pancho. The two men share lunch and are joined by an old miner. They play a game of cards, and Pancho takes the nickname "Jack" while the miner calls himself King. Five months later, the trio rides into Mirage City, which, as a result of a plot by John Brent, has run out of water. Brent's niece and ex-partner Beatrice believes he is deliberately diverting the city's water supply, and she appeals to Ace, Pancho and King for help. The three men ride up to the dam, jump the guards and manage to open the reservoir gate. Slade, who is one of the guards, escapes, and as Pancho follows him, Ace and King follow the stream of water that feeds the reservoir. Their trail leads them to an Indian, who shows how the water is being diverted underground. Meanwhile, Pancho has followed Slade to a cave, where he discovers Dolores' photograph. Back in town, Ace tells Beatrice what he has uncovered, and after Slade reports to Brent, Brent has Slade kidnap her. After Pancho frees Beatrice, Ace and King follow Brent to his hideout and steal his ammunition. After Ace, who King and Pancho learn is actually the sheriff named Jim, expels Brent from town, he finds Slade's body, which has been skinned. Using the stolen ammunition, Ace and Pancho dynamite the underground reservoir, which breaks the dam and floods Mirage City, trapping Brent and his men in a landslide. The trio of men meet with Beatrice, and Ace says they now have their queen.
