The residents of a small town are being pressured by a man, Bartholomew Bogue to sell him their land for a paltry price. They gather together at the church to meet about how they should handle Bogue. Bogue shows up and then burns the church, one of the citizens stands up to Bogue and Bogue kills him. The man's wife then heads off to find help. And while at a town, she sees a man take out some men all by himself. She then approaches him and asks for his help. The man, Sam Chisolm is not interested till he is told about Bogue. He recruits a man whom he saw handle himself quite well. The man, Faraday says yes and they recruit or come across some other men of skill and they total seven. They go to the town and take care of Bogue's men. Chisolm sends one of Bogue's men to give Bogue a message. Chisolm then talks to the town telling them, they need to get ready because Bogue will be back with an army.
