Five men ride into the eerie town of Yellow Rock hoping to rescue a family member and his lost boy. They hire Tom Hanner, known as Mountain Man, to guide them into the "Black Paw Tribe territory" for the search. The group rides in, first receiving permission from the Tribal Elders, and endeavor to trek through the wild land in search of the missing. Once they pass through, the old Indian legend of a "curse" comes true. Now riddled with the fever for Yellow Rock they must fight the haunted lands, wild animals and eventually each other to ensure divine justice is met leaving the Paw Tribe to live once more in peace...until the next "white men" came.
