Five men ride into a small Western town in an attempt to rescue a man and his lost boy. The group's leader hires mountain man Tom Hanner to guide them into the Black Paw Tribe territory for the search. Hanner agrees on the condition that they receive permission from the tribe to enter their lands, and they recruit the assistance of Sarah Taylor, a doctor who tends to the Indians and lives in the territory. Receiving permission from the tribal elders, the band begins its trek through the wild land in search of the missing, but an Indian legend about the curse of the "yellow rock" found in the area proves true. Consumed with gold fever, the members of the party end up struggling not only with the haunted land and its wild animals but also fighting with each other. With costume designer/co-producer Catherine Elhoffer and producer Lenore Andriel.
