PlotEdit

Frank Garrett (Jay Crew) is a wealthy landowner who is in love with Joanna (Anikka Albrite), a prostitute.[4] Garrett is sick and has a short time left to live, so he hands Joanna a copy of the deed to the north end of his ranch, along with a map.[4] Garrett dies shortly after and Joanna is wrongfully accused of murdering and attempting to rob him by Sheriff Clayton (Steven St. Croix), who orders her to be hanged.[4] The Sheriff did so because he wanted the deed she had inherited.[2] Meanwhile, Dani (Stormy Daniels) arrives in Diablo City for a big poker tournament, where she intends to win enough money to help her friend Birdie (Amber Rayne) save the family ranch.[4] Dani learns about Joanna's situation from Garrett's assistant, Samuel (Eric Masterson), and Joanna's friend, Lilah (Allie Haze), when the poker game is broken up by her rowdy arrest.[4] Dani decides to save Joanna by engaging in a shootout with Sheriff Clayton and his posse, then fleeing the town with her.[4] Morgan (Brendon Miller), a bounty hunter, arrives as Sheriff Clayton is asking for someone to apprehend them and agrees to help.[4] Dani had previously robbed Morgan while she was working as a prostitute on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.[4] When Morgan locates Dani, she makes a deal with him to split her share of whatever is found at Garrett's ranch.[4] Samuel returns home to retrieve the original deed for Garrett's land and ask his wife Sally (Jodi Taylor) to hand it to Marshal Lane (Brad Armstrong) in Yuma.[4] The pursuit concludes in a showdown between Dani, Sheriff Clayton, and their posses.[4]
