Four men stand in a shootout, staring one another down until the audience is brought into the memory of one of the gunslingers: The Nomad. A stranger in the desert Badlands, Milton encounters the Nomad, and is shot dead while describing a vision of paradise just beyond the dunes. The Nomad proceeds to loot the remains of Milton, before heading off to camp for the night. After putting his horse down to bed for the night, the Nomad dreams of a preacher who send him off into the desert to protect a mysterious city, reminding him to ensure the horse is looked after. The Nomad awakens with the realization that the horse is more important to his mission than he is, and with a certainty that he is never intended to see his home again. Rather than kill the next intruder into his desert, The Nomad conspires with the next shady stranger he encounters to fake his own death, sending the horse home for the Nomad to follow. After the deal is struck, the Nomad leaves to meet two more strangers who have entered the badlands. Knowing that his horse is more his enemy than his friend, The Nomad takes a liking to these two strangers, The Entrepreneur and The Sherpa, and chooses to spend some time with them. After a long day of travel and a conversational dinner, they sleep around the fire. The Nomad dreams once again of the preacher and his warnings. When the Nomad awakes, his horse has vanished. Believing these two new strangers are responsible, he attacks and ties them up for questioning. He comes to realize that the true culprit must be the shady stranger he encountered earlier in the day.

The audience is drawn back into the 4-way shootout, this time, more tense, as guns are drawn. The perspective shifts now to the Entrepreneur's memory. He stands at a river with his father, discussing a the opening of a new station on the Monorail line that is currently under construction that leads into the desert Badlands. The next morning the Entrepreneur's father is assassinated by a shady Criminal who flees off into the desert. That evening, The Entrepreneur and his indentured man, The Sherpa, are drinking at a bar when a loud patron begins to insult the memory of The Entrepreneur's father. He gets up form the table and drunkenly beats the patron to death with his pistol. Once he and The Sherpa realize they would be arrested for the crime, they flee into the desert after The Criminal.

Once again, the shootout between The Nomad, The Entrepreneur, The Sherpa, and The Criminal appears, as the Entrepreneur reaches for his pistol. This time, the memory of The Criminal is revealed. He has been hired to kill a Monorail Tycoon the next day, which he dutifully does, fleeing in to the desert. He meets the Nomad, who spares his life to take advantage of his accuracy with a pistol in his faked death. The Criminal agrees to a deal and leaves The Nomad to meet him in two days. Later that evening, The Criminal spots The Nomad at a campfire with the son of his last kill. He assumes himself to be betrayed and decides to steal the horse.

Returning to the 4-way shootout, six gunshots abruptly go off, and each man falls to the ground, leaving the horse still standing. After the sun begins to set, one man stirs, gets up and follows the horse back home [ [] ] .
