His plan hits a snag, however, when he discovers that since his incarceration, Mary Lee has taken up with Duke, the very sheriff who put Poke behind bars in the first place. Things turn even worse for Poke when he later witnesses Duke assassinating a local Hispanic politician. Now with Duke out for his blood, Poke must choose to run for his life or make a stand.
