Minnie is a lively girl who runs the Polkasaloon frequently visited by miners. Rance, the sheriff, falls for Minnie, but she, in turn, falls for a bandit Ramerrez. The people in the town want to capture Ramerrez and hang him. An armed Minnie shows up just in time and reminds the miners of everything she does for them, hoping to get them to set him free.
