Dr. Jada Morgan, a young Chiricahua Apache woman, is driven by a fierce obsession to avenge the deaths of her parents who were killed in an attack on her village by Mexican troops when she was a child. Adopted by a wealthy white doctor, she is educated in the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, then returns west. Although she swore revenge on the colonel responsible for the murder of her family, retribution is delayed by her adrenalin-driven life.
